Ditmas Park Corner blog brings word that Brooklyn-born messenger bag and clothing maker Brooklyn Industries plans to open an outpost at 1420 Cortelyou Road in Ditmas Park. This will be the eighth Brooklyn location for the retailer (16th in total), which started in Williamsburg and is now based in Dumbo. The firm chose this location because “a lot of customers who purchase our stuff actually live in Ditmas Park and have been making the trek to our store in Park Slope,” said a spokesman quoted by the Brooklyn Paper.
