NEW YORK—Deal$, a discount chain with more than 180 store locations across the U.S., has signed a 10,624-sq.-ft. lease at 301 West 145th Street, located on the southeast corner of Frederick Douglass Blvd. Winick Realty Group LLC’s Tatiana Jung, associate director, and Richard Smith, director, represented landlord Langston Retail LLC in the transaction. Deal$, an affiliate of publicly traded Dollar Tree, was represented by Miles Mahoney of Ripco.

Expected to open in the spring of 2013, Deal$ joins other retailers at the ground-floor level of The Langston Condominium, a 179-unit residential building. Those retailers include Bank of America, Starbucks and New York Sports Club.

“The neighborhood is becoming more and more upscale and it was calling for something fresh and new,” said Smith “This type of store doesn’t exist anywhere else in the neighborhood and it’s something the area really needed.”
