Odin's East Village location has closed on 11th Street

After 12 years in business, Odin has closed its East Village location on 11th Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

The men's boutique still has two other locations — on Grand Street and Greenwich Avenue. (In 2007, New York magazine named Odin "Best Fashion-y Men’s Store.")

There isn't any mention of the closure on Odin's social media accounts ... and we don't know the reason behind this decision, whether it was a rent increase or a slowdown in business — or both.

The owners also shut down Pas de Deux, their 9-year-old women’s boutique next door.

This is scalp can go to online shopping (fad startups and legitimate online retailers like Need Supply alike) more than the landlord, this time.

Probably should have closed 5 years ago, but the owner's dad is super rich and bankrolls it despite the losses is what I heard.

That part of 11th is so dirty with garbage all over the street, it has to affect business. They really need a block association - just saying.

Unfortunately, the latest business on the street, VENIERO'S, is not a very good neighborhood. By and large, the trash strewn about the street is refuse from this pastry shop. They make so effort to curb this practice on the part of their customers by posting signage or placing trash receptacles outside. And ye, you are right, this affect business.
