Just a note to say good riddance to the Ed Hardy store from Tampa’s International Plaza:
Free People, a 42-store chain created by the owners of youthful lifestyle brands Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie, sells women’s apparel, accessories and gifts. Considered a bit more fashion conscious, younger and bohemian than the more traditional Anthropologie, Free People takes over space vacated by the closing of Ed Hardy. The stores are an outgrowth of the Free People clothing line, which was first made for a Philadelphia store of the same name. The target customer is a self-confident 26-year-old female who considers herself “sweet to rough, tomboy to romantic.”
Where, oh where, will the geriatric douchebags of South Tampa find their too-tight T-shirts?
One other question: what does it say when Anthropologie is considered traditional as opposed to bohemian?
