Sunnyside Business Expands, Another Opens

Claire expands into vacant Dentist office (Photo: QueensPost)

June 6, 2011 Staff Report

Claire, the unisex hair salon located at 43-46 44th Street, is expanding into the space next door that was previously occupied by a dentist.

Meanwhile, Bliss Drugs is about to open at 47-01 Queens Blvd, where a branch of HSBC-owned Beneficial Credit Service was based. HSBC closed down Beneficial throughout the US. That company was plagued by lawsuits concerning questionable lending practices.

Kiwi isn’t at Claires or Europea though, but if you want an appointment with her just call her up at 718-729-1391 or 917-698-1828


Just went to Claire’s to get my hair cut by Kiwi. She is a great hair stylist! She gave me the best cut and she really takes her time with you. I HIGHLY recommend her. If you go to Claire’s, ask for Kiwi or, or you can reach her at 718-729-1391 or 917-698-1828. You won’t be disappointed.


I do wonder if Sunnyside really needs another pharmacy!
Why to they keep opening and more impressively, how do they stay open with all the competition?


Nobody, I agree with you, How can our ltttle town keep all those drug stores in business, expecially with them being so close to each other.

Funny thing I woner if the same person owns all of them under different corporate names.


seriously. sunnyside is somewhat grey, but there’s no way all these places can stay in business.


Roxy you are so right on with your comment abut drug stores. I wonder who is feeding all these drug stores. It probably is the numner 1 business in our town. I remember when vidio stores liked our streets now its nail salons and drug stores.


I can’t imagine how these independent drug stores are able to survive in Sunnyside against competition from CVS, Rite-Aid, and Duane Reade outlets.
Makes one wonder if they are “covers” for something else?


Congradulation to Serge for expanding the busines that he bought from Claire.

I hear a great many of her customers miss claire for her sweetness and caring and gentless with her customers.

Make sure that serge charges clairs old prices before you get work done. He will charge new higher price after you are finished telling you that his prices have gone up.
