Project No. 8 Shutters 138 Division Store

Posted on: August 26th, 2011 at 6:42 am by

Project No. 8 at 138 Division Street decided to throw in the towel after more than four years in business.  The trendy womenswear boutique held a final sample sale at the flagship location last week, and shuttered in favor of an online store (starting today).  Four years of peddling overpriced threads have come to an end here.

Despite the closure, however, menswear sibling store Project No. 8b at 38 Orchard Street will remain in place.  An update on their official blog confirms the news:

Following the Sample Sale, our womenswear collections will be available ONLINE ONLY. Our Division Street women’s store—our original store—will close at the end of the sale. We would like to say THANK YOU! for all of the incredible support over the years!! It has been a wonderful space with the very best people we could imagine coming through it!
