The Shophound has complied a list of, "a few stores who, for whatever reason, have left us this year, or are currently slogging through their final days." Top of the list is Houston Street store Via Bus Stop. We weren't aware that it had actually shuttered for good, but thinking back on it, the store has been looking pretty ghostly of late.
