ANNA ON THE MOVE: After 23 years on Greene Street (between Prince and Spring Streets) in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood, Anna Sui is moving south to 484 Broome St. (between Wooster and West Broadway). According to Sui, the move was prompted by her newish neighbors on Greene. “All the spaces are turning into very high-end luxury boutiques,” she said. “It seems like all the cooler shops are moving south. I will certainly be closer there to other stores that also suit my customer.  The new location matches my sensibility and aesthetics much more. I have high hopes; the area seems busier than ever. Of course I’m very sentimental about my original shop. We painted and decorated it ourselves; a total labor of love. It will be hard to leave it behind.” As of now, Sui plans to vacate the Greene St. store in early July and open on Broome later in the month.
