‘Killion’ Kills off Orchard Street Boutique After Less Than 2 Years
Another Orchard Street boutique bites the dust.
Killion killed off its Lower East Side store a couple weeks ago without much notice to the neighborhood. The silent shutter frees up one of three retail spaces at 145 Orchard, an address familiar with high turnover (aka “Orchard Estate”).
Killion debuted at Orchard Street in August 2015, peddling “modern menswear” on a block once bursting with such businesses. They had a sense of humor, always boasting a pithy sandwich board messages about how Kim Kardashian bought all Kanye West’s clothes there. The brand didn’t last the median two years to which most shops in the area tend to adhere. However, Killion still maintains an online marketplace.
The Mastihashop spent seven years in this space before calling it quits in early 2015.
