Many wholesale clothing stores used to line Orchard Street when this was a Jewish enclave many years ago, and this was known as a place to get a bargain. These days, Orchard Street is undergoing rapid, and radical change with many of those bargain stores closing and being converted into upscale boutiques, or bars, or simply demolished with a luxury condominium built in its place.
