ODD Boutique is Leaving Ludlow Street After 5 Years

Posted on: August 4th, 2017 at 5:06 am by

Exactly one year ago, we wrote a story about how the ODD boutique was leaving its headquarters on Ludlow Street. But the fashion flight didn’t happen then and there. At the time, ownership had told us that they wouldn’t move for another year, despite the “incredibly early presence” of the tombstone leasing signage. That promise of departure is now coming to fruition, though.

ODD recently announced that it’s leaving the Lower East Side after five years, choosing to settle Brooklyn instead. Indeed, the ODD crew tells us that the brand is moving to a new store on Grand Street in Williamsburg.

The street-style debuted at 164 Ludlow back in 2012. It was the second such business to occupy the OG Ludlow Guitars space after the music store relocated up the block (the first being Castle & Pierpont). Now, they’re all gone.
