A trio of lonely souvenir stores remained open in Chinatown on Thursday as the coronavirus crisis continued to pummel Big Apple businesses, turning some of the city’s most bustling shopping streets into ghost towns.

“Who is going to pay our rent? We made $100 today. I need to pay rent for my house,” said Safikul Uzzal, 28, who owns two of the open stores, Shah Jalal Gift Shop on Canal Street and Gifts and Souvenirs on Mulberry Street.

“I’m scared but what can I do?”

Uzzal managed to scrape together the measly earnings by selling a few “I Love New York” T-shirts and a couple of magnets depicting the New York license plate to tourists visiting from Florida and Pennsylvania.

He typically sells the shirts for around $10 a pop but had to lower the price to about $6.

“I don’t have any choice,” Uzzal acquiesced.

“Right now there are no tourists.”

One of Uzzal’s employees, who only identified himself as Hassan, was manning the Shah Jalal store while Uzzal worked out of the Mulberry Street outpost.

“It’s very dead, I only made $20 today. A lot of stores closed. I was closed yesterday,” the worker said.

Another shop on Mulberry Street, Little Italy Famous Gifts, also remained open but they were yet to make a sale as of 2:40 p.m. Thursday.

“My owner told me to work today and they made no money,” said the worker, who didn’t give their name.

The open stores were outliers on the deserted streets where the rest of the neighboring businesses, typically swamped with tourists from every corner of the globe, remained closed.

Only a handful of people were seen walking by, all wearing masks on their faces. No one stopped to shop.

Currently, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is allowing non-essential businesses like these to remain open, as long as the store is less than 100,000 square feet and has their own entrance.

Uzzal said he’ll think about closing if he gets some help from the city but right now, that just isn’t an option.

“A couple of stores are open,” he said.

“So I am open, too.”
