Historic Core Ed Hardy Outlet Shuts Doors After Less Than Six Months

Well that was fast.

Less than six months after quietly opening its doors, a sign outside the Ed Hardy outlet store on Spring street says that "This location is permanently closed."

The shop opened without even a sign on April 4. While reaction to the store here on blogdowntown may not have been kind, the brand is a big seller and was a surprising name for a neighborhood not known for retail.

So is this closure an indictment on the Historic Core's retail future? One suspects not. Opening and closing so quickly speaks more to shifting whims than to an unrealized business plan.
