Shakespeare & Company ultimately got kicked out for a Foot Locker

A big rent hike helped force Shakespeare & Company's to close its longtime home at 716 Broadway between Washington Place and Waverly Place.

The landlord reportedly hiked the rent to $50,000 a month.

Anyway, as it was previously reported, a Foot Locker is taking the space... and Dave on 7th noted that the signage recently arrived.

Incidentally, Foot Locker—and Lady Foot Locker—is the last vestige of the once-mighty Woolworth's marketing empire.
