It’s The End Of An Era: Supreme To Shut The Doors Of Original NYC Store
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES — Iconic streetwear brand and retailer, Supreme is set to close its flagship store at 274 Lafayette Street. The space is up for lease.
The news was announced just months after the brand celebrated the 25th anniversary of its opening.
The 190 Bowery store will be the company’s new main flagship shop in the city.
Supreme confirmed the news to Hypebeast after ‘Space for Lease’ signs appeared on the windows of the shop last week.
Supreme announced in February that its Lafayette shop would undergo renovations, and the label opened the 190 Bowery space as a temporary store.
The 274 Lafayette Street location is where Supreme sold its first t-shirt designs back in 1994. The space has become an integral part of the city’s streetwear community, with many queuing outside for hours to get their hands on the brand’s latest merch.
Supreme also has stores in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, London and Paris, as well as several locations in Japan. A further shop is set to open in San Francisco soon.
