PARK SLOPE — An organic juice bar that sells a $15 "superfood bath" smoothie is set to open this spring at 207 Seventh Ave.
Juice Press will move into the space last occupied by Yogurtland on Seventh Avenue and Third Street.
“Juice Press is thrilled to announce its third Brooklyn location, joining Williamsburg and Brooklyn Heights,” a spokeswoman said. “We strongly believe in the growth of Brooklyn and feel appreciative that its residents have welcomed our product with open arms.”
The NYC-based juice maker was founded in 2010 and now has 32 stores, a spokeswoman said.
Juice Press sells organic cold-pressed juices, cleanses and smoothies that are touted as a favored form of liquid nutrition for supermodels and other professional beauties.
Some of the juices cost upwards of $10 for a 16-ounce serving, but Juice Press says its prices represent the "fair market" cost of making juice out of raw, organic produce.
The $15 Guru smoothie is a 510-calorie, 16-ounce "meal replacement" made of frozen fruit and "superfoods." It initially sold for $18, but Juice Press founder Marcus Antebi lowered the price in 2011.
Other comings and goings on the neighborhood retail and restaurant scene include the following:
► The women's boutique Flirt Brooklyn closed its North Slope location at 95 Fifth Ave. on Jan. 3 and moved to the South Slope at 586 Fifth Ave., between 16th Street and Prospect Avenue. Flirt has had the South Slope outpost since 2013. In addition to producing and selling clothes in the space, Flirt offers sewing classes there. Merchandise at the South Slope store is 20 percent off for the time being, the store announced on Facebook.
► A gym that lets you compare your performance to other exercisers is coming to 248 Flatbush Ave., between St. Marks Avenue and Prospect Place.

The Flatbush Avenue outpost will open this summer, a spokeswoman told DNAinfo New York.
