Nipsey Hussle‘s Marathon Clothing Store has decided to focus on all the online orders that they have to fulfill, and closed their flagship store. The same location where Nipsey Hussle was tragically killed directly in front of the store front!
The Marathon Clothing Store is located on what formerly known as Crenshaw and Slauson, but now renamed in honor of Nipsey Hussle to Nipsey Hussle Square! His team hasn’t specified if they are permanently closing the flagship store. We can imagine it’s been super hectic with media, fans, celebrities, and just the fact of where he was murdered has been too much. On top of the chaos the demand of Nipsey’s clothing brand (that partnered with Puma before his death) has increased! His team is working overtime to get merchandise out.
Nipsey’s memorial was removed from in front of the store due to that chaotic scene and traffic. Also bootleggers were charging for “hood tours”, and even charged for tourists to walk thru the area he was murdered. Food trucks began lining up to get apart of the action, and it became a circus. Other businesses are also in the plaza that Nipsey owned , and the chaos impacted their traffic as well. They’ve sold 2 million orders and counting so far!
I think the family should’ve closed the store, and stuck to online until they were done mourning. Black Sam, Nipsey’s business partner and brother set up shop afterwards, and continued what they started. Before the Celebration of Nipsey Hussle & after celebrities came during in along wit fans to take pics and support the line. Sam was swamped with responsibilities, and we can only imagine.
In “Racks In The Middle” featuring Roddy Ricch Nipsey sends a chilling message while spitting bars about his friend “Fatzz” who passed away. His close friend didn’t get to witness the success of what they started. Nipsey advises his family and loved one to continue on with the things they started, and mash the gas.
Black Sam did a great job of holding down the fort, and focusing on online until the time is right for a re-opening of The Marathon Clothing Store.
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 and is the only authorized retailer of our brand. Once again, thank you for your support.They also ask for everyone’s patients since the outpouring of support has been so overwhelming for the store. There have been over two million orders were clocked in.
Lauren London, Nipsey’s life partner also shared the statement on her instagram.
