Two Apparel Stores Plan To Shut Down

From Staff And Wire Reports
 

Two longtime Spokane apparel stores said Wednesday they will close after Christmas.

Fit & Hollywood, an upscale apparel and sports equipment shop, will shut its downtown store after nine years in the Parkade Plaza.

Jean Nicole, a woman’s apparel store, will close after 16 years at NorthTown Mall.

Patti Pettigrew, owner of Fit & Hollywood, said there’s too little customer traffic downtown to support her young men’s and women’s clothing line. She said she plans to reopen the store next year in a shopping mall, which she declined to name.

However, the sports equipment line will be moved to another downtown location and renamed Spokane Fitness Supply. Pettigrew declined to disclose the site.

Jean Nicole will close in January under orders of a U.S. Bankruptcy Court. The New Jersey-based clothing chain declared bankruptcy earlier this year. As part of that action, it closed its store in Coeur d’Alene’s Silver Lake Mall two weeks ago.
