Well, the softgoods maker had a couple of OK years (though the tipster that wrote us about this claimed he "?never saw anyone in the store."), but the Melrose LeSportsac location is officially finito, as of last week. While higher end shops seem to be flourishing in the area, it's not looking so good for the mid-range. Anyone want to start a Melrose Avenue Deathpool and wager on what shop will go next?
