This week, Boston prepares to wave goodbye to a cultural institution as high-end retailer Louis announced it will be closing its doors. After more than 85 years of business, Debbie Greenberg, owner of the fashion forward retail outlet of the city, said in a statement to the Boston Globe:
“Business is on point at our current location with steady year-over-year growth, but after 25 years of extensive travel to Paris, London and New York five months a year in search of the world’s finest clothing, it is simply time to change direction and turn my attention to projects and passions outside the retail arena.”
