Things are looking up for Amanda Byron Zink, whose pet boutique and grooming business at 38 Peck Slip was trashed by Superstorm Sandy. Still displaced from her original location, she now has a pop-up shop at the end of Pier 17 in the Seaport. The Howard Hughes Corporation has agreed to keep the pier open through Sept. 9 before demolishing the existing mall to make room for a new one.
Zink said that after months of trying to reach Howard Hughes management, three weeks ago she got an email from the firm’s new general manager for the mall, Phillip St. Pierre. “He knew I was looking for space,” she said, “so he offered temporary space on the pier.” She said her rent was “very fair” for the space formerly occupied by the Sequoia restaurant.
