South Grand on the Move

Thomas Crone, our eye on the street, tells us that retro clothier FiFi's has a flyer in its window at 3190 South Grand that says, "As of August 6th we will be at 6172 Delmar across from the Pin up Bowl in the Loop... Please stop in and see the new Shop or give us a call at 314-773-2234."

I guess they'll have to change their domain name (fifisongrand.com), too. While they're at it, they can correct the line on their site that says, "Comming [sic] soon to our new location."

Ajay Zutshi confirmed the news of FiFi's impending move and one-upped TC by noting that there's also a sign on the door of Gulf Coast Cafe that says it's closed. Calling the number on the sign yielded no further details.

Is the Loop only a stopping off place, on the way to Washington Ave? Take MacroSun for instance. First the CWE, then the Loop for a brief respite, now downtown. An anomaly or an early example of hip-hopping DaLou style? There are a handful of trendy shopping districts in the city. Are businesses going to leapfrog from one to the next in the hope of cheaper rents and higher foot traffic? Most importantly, does it matter to the average city consumer?

Macrosun is buying their bigger property downtown as it is more suitable for their inventory, not for cheaper rent.
