Boutique 411 has confirmed what a commenter mentioned a few days ago: Arcade Boutique at 8473 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood is gone. Owner Rochelle Gores shut down the shop at the end of May and has gone to work for her father Alec Gores' private equity firm, The Gores Group. She told WWD: "I’ve really enjoyed creating and running Arcade. The success has exceeded my highest expectations. It has been great between the celebrities, the customers and all the press, but I’ve had the chance to work with my father and the talented people of The Gores Group and it was way too much of an exciting thing to pass up."
