Carlos Campos Evicted from 75 Orchard Street

Posted on: January 4th, 2012 at 6:44 am by

It would appear that menswear boutique Carlos Campos didn’t exude the best of first impressions here on the Lower East Side.  Their first dedicated brick-and-mortar store, located at 75 Orchard Street shuttered last week after little more than four months in business.  Window paper quickly arrived, but no one knew the cause for closure. Until now.

Yesterday afternoon, legal paperwork was taped to the doorway.  The building owner is apparently knee-deep in the eviction process, suing Carlos Campos for unpaid rent to the tune of $28,596.73.

There is no mention of the closure on the website, Twitter feed, or Facebook page.  We called numerous times for further comment and received no answer.
