Marathon Clothing, the brand conceptualized and owned by the Nipsey Hussle, has closed.
Lauren London, Hussle’s girlfriend, posted a message on Instagram on Tuesday regarding the Los Angeles store’s closure. The store’s online market is fully functionally, but the closing of the physical store is indefinite.
The note, with “The Marathon Clothing” as its header, read: “... We appreciate the unprecedented outpour of support. It means a lot to our team and family. We are working around the clock to fulfill every order placed. We ask for your patience as we get everything fulfilled and shipped out to you. Additionally, our flagship store is closed right now, but our online store is open 24/7 to serve you...”
On March 31, Hussle, a Grammy-nominated rapper, was gunned down outside the South Los Angeles flagship store. The man accused of shooting Hussle, 29-year-old Eric Holder, was arrested April 2 in Bellflower, California.
In the weeks since his death, online sales for the store have catapulted. Several celebrity friends, including Meek Mill and The Game, went on shopping sprees, according to a TMZ report.
