Rogan on the Bowery Calls it Quits

Some retail turnover news to report at the Bouwerie Lane Theatre, currently shrouded in netting. One of its high-profile anchor tenants at 330 Bowery is kaput.
The Rogan boutique debuted on the Bowery in May 2008. Right around the time that Varvatos seized control of CBGB. Both were seemingly game-changers for the upper section of the thoroughfare, ushering in a new age of unaffordable boutiques in the area. Now Rogan is no longer in the retail picture here.
Doors are chained and locked shut; gate closed.
Rogan closed on April 3 and wrote the following “breakup letter” to the Bowery. Looks like they’re seeking a new storefront and will have a summer pop-up in the meantime.
We need to talk. The ROGAN bouwerie store is closed as of 3 april 2013. Look out for our upcoming summer pop-up shop, and a new storefront in 2013. We should still hang out online, the rogannyc.com store is always there for you, no matter what.
I want you to know, Bowery, it’s not you, it’s me. You are going to go on to do such great things, I think that this will be really good for you. I will always remember our time together with fondness.
