NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Local t-shirt store Storyville will close up shop at the end of the month.
Owners Natalie Harvey and Josh Harvey posted their intentions to close the 10-year-old business on the store’s Facebook page this morning.
“Supplying the wardrobe for your everyday life events — Jazz Fests, birthdays, football game days — has brought us so much joy over the years,” they wrote. “We still smile every time we see a stranger wearing a Storyville tee.”
The couple cite their part in the fight with the NFL over the ownership of “Who Dat” and their tongue in cheek attempt to recruit Brad Pitt to run for Mayor of New Orleans as some of the high points of the last decade.
“Josh and I will cherish every memory of running Storyville,” Natalie Harvey wrote. “Our employees and our customers were the greatest things about running our business. Thank you for letting us be a part of the New Orleans community (and Baton Rouge and Austin not so long ago). It’s time for us to focus on the future: raising our two boys in this wonderful city.”
The post ends with a simple statement from the couple: “We had so much fun. Thank you.”
