Kitson closing all stores

Iconic apparel retailer Kitson is closing all of its locations. The West Hollywood retailer was founded in 2000 by Fraser Ross and was frequently visited by celebrities.

Kitson was known for selling unique merchandise form local designers,  LA Business Journal reported. It currently has 17 brick-and-mortar locations throughout California, Oregon and Nevada. As of Thursday, the online store, ShopKitson.com, was already no longer in service.

The company is in discussions about a potential sale that "preserves the iconic brand that loyal customer have come to love and respect," James Wong, Kitson's chief restructuring officer, told LA Business Journal.

Investment firm Gordon Brothers Group and retail advisory firm Hilco Merchant Resources are aiding with the store closing sales in all physical locations. The duo was approved to liquidate all assets on behalf of Coldwater Creek in 2014 when the retailer filed for bankruptcy and put all stores up for auction.
