9 stores shut down at The Hub

Several stores shutting down near a central shopping spot in the Bronx have some customers worried about what's ahead.



The Hub is now nine stores short.



News 12 is told that most of the stores closing within the past year - primarily mom-and-pop shops - could be a result of not only bigger retailers attracting customers, but the growing diversity of the area.



The Hub's Business Improvement District says that although it wants every storefront filled, the area is still booming.
