Looks like the doors will soon close for good on the flagship store for P. Diddy’s Sean John clothing line.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, the Manhattan store, which first opened back in 2004, will shut down at the end of the year. A spokesperson released a statement citing “inadequate selling space” as a driving factor in the closing.
Last year, the clothing company launched a $2.5 million lawsuit against the owner of the building, located at 475 Fifth Avenue, claiming the scaffolding had been interfering with foot traffic since 2006, cutting the company’s revenue in half.
Sean John did announce that they are planning stages to bring stores to New York and L.A. in the future.
