From EBay To Storefront, One Bronx Woman Makes The Jump From Virtual To Reality

About 7 years ago, Gleiry Feliz found herself away from family and home in Boston with a lot of time on her hands after relocating for a job.

It was at this time that Feliz put her spare time to work and opened up an EBay store reselling all types of clothing which soon became very popular.

So popular that people began to ask, “Where’s your store?”


Two weeks ago she finally answered that question by opening up Fashion Hub in Melrose, bringing along all the clothing and accessories she once sold online under the name Vestido Shop.

The store is located on Melrose Avenue between 151st and 152nd Streets and is open from Mondays through Saturday from 10am to 7pm and Sundays from 10am to 5pm.

Some of the types of clothing Feliz carries are jeans (the popular ‘butt-lifting’ kind along with regular jeans), tops, and dresses. She currently is under works to exclusively carry a specific line in the New York area however she cannot name the label until all the details are finalized.

Gleiry, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in computer science and worked as a software engineer never thought she’d find herself in this line of business but is giving it all she’s got to make it work.

Currently she has one employee, her brother Raniel, who assists her at the store.

Welcome2TheBronx is always happy to see Bronxites open up their own businesses and we wish nothing but success to Gleiry Feliz on her new endeavor. Make sure you visit Fashion Hub and support a local mom and pop shop!
