Minnie’s Secret herbal store is closed

Minnie’s Secret at 1507 E. Passyunk Ave appears to have closed up shop. You might not know the shop by name, but you probably would recognize it as the bright green storefront next the chiropractor that’s attached to Sweat.

It offered all sorts of Eastern delights and holistic treatments, like reflexology, accupuncture, massage, herbs, waxing and other services.

Inside it all torn up, the sign is painted over and there was no answer on the phone.

In better days, from streetview

Sometimes on weekends, you’d also see a chair massage deal on the sidewalk to draw people in, but we never indulged. We couldn’t find much about this place, including a working website. Did anyone ever go in here? Are you surprised it’s closed?

    I don’t think it is anything to be worried about. I rarely saw people in there which means they probably didn’t do great business and/or were not a good fit for the Avenue. I see this as an opportunity for a new business to open and further the growth of the retail and service corridor.

    I heard this was a place for “happy ending massages”

    That store always seemed a little weird.
