It’s The End Of A Fame Whore Era: Kitson Is Closing

December 11, 2015 / Posted by:

Put on your Team Aniston or Team Jolie t-shirt, throw a Von Dutch hat on your head and pour out the iced tea you got to go from The Ivy, because the once fame whore capital of Robertson Blvd. is closing forever. Gone is the dream that one day you’ll get to text your friend on your bedazzled Sidekick about how you just saw Kimberly Stewart and Brittny Gastineau buy matching Mrs. Kutcher t-shirts and baby blue UGGs at Kitson. Let us all cry into our Juicy Couture sweats (you know, the ones with “Juicy” on the ass), because a piece of the early 2000s has died.

I did not know that there are 17 Kitsons spread throughout California, Oregon and Nevada, but it’s true. Who knew that there were 17 places on the West Coast where I could buy an Adderall jersey and a sequined trucker cap. But the Los Angeles Times says that all of those 17 stores, including their main one on Robertson, will soon be empty shells filled with the dusty memories of fame whores buying their overpriced crap just so the paparazzi will take their picture. Kitson’s website is also closing. Their going-out-of business sale started yesterday.

Since fame whores are fickle messes, Kitson is no longer the jewel of the ho stroll like it once was. It hasn’t been doing well money-wise and the company that owns Spencer’s tried to save it, but it was too late.

In 2013, the company got a $15-million credit line from Salus Capital Partners to refinance its debts and provide working capital.

Then this summer, Spencer Spirit Holdings Inc., which owns the Spirit Halloween costume stores and Spencer’s novelty gift shops, agreed to extend a loan to Kitson to pay down the loan with Salus and stave off the bankruptcy that was likely to follow.

RIP Kitson. You’ll always be a major part of the simpler times when Kim Kartrashian was known as “Paris Hilton’s assistant.

And let’s take a stroll down fame whore memory lane….
