Jack Wills Clothing Store Closes on Nassau Street

jackwillsAnother downtown Princeton retail store has closed. Jack Wills, a British clothing brand geared towards college students, closed last weekend.

The store, part of Palmer Square, was located at 46 Nassau Street. The Princeton location opened in the fall of 2013.

Jack Wills still has retails stores in Philadelphia, Boston, Chatham, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Westport, New Canaan, and Ardmore.

In January, Kate Spade, Aerosoles and Design Within Reach also closed.

  • Jordan’s at Princeton Shopping Center is also closing. Not their choice. Sad …..

  • A search shows the Yale and Georgetown stores have closed in the last few months and the company reported a loss last year. Sounds unrelated to Princeton. Just a business in trouble everywhere.

  • I went into the store twice, and both times I was amazed anyone would ever buy something there. It was outrageously priced and not particularly unique or attractive. Certainly the rent might have been high, but that doesn’t explain why literally there were never any people inside. Bad concept.

  • Most of the target consumers live on campus across the street. I don’t see how meter feeding is that relevant here.

  • maybe if all day meter feeding was not a wink, wink, nod, nod accepted way of life for shop keepers and staff, people would be able to visit some of these stores

  • Interesting that a chain store has closed – I have watched this store wondering about its market here. Will there be another high end chain store? Are high rents responsible for the closings?
