Louis Boston to close after more than 85 years

Iconic luxury men's apparel retailer Louis Boston announced it would close its doors after more than 85 years. The high-end store became a Boston institution in the retail industry, outfitting politicians such as Ted Kennedy and Kevin White, and launching the career of now famous designer Joseph Abboud. The store location was moved from the Back Bay to Fan Pier in 2010 and now owner Debi Greenberg has turned down an offer to move locations again as a developer plans to build on the store's site. Story
