Tory Burch Vacates Flagship Elizabeth Street Location After 12 Years

The first ever location of Tory Burch is now dormant.
It was at 257 Elizabeth Street that the eponymous designer opened her first-ever boutique in 2004. Aided by a juicy plug from Oprah Winfrey a year later, business took off big time. Now, the fashion line just ditched that history. Several readers alerted us to the closure of this location, leaving dark a prime piece of Little Italy for some newcomer.
The downtown outpost was last in the news in the fall of 2015 when its “athleisure” product line – Tory Sport – reinvented the shop. “It was a bit tired after 11 years, I gutted the whole thing,” Burch quipped to Business of Fashion at the time.
Less than a year later, it’s curtains.
