After four years, Williamsburg's best dressed dudes will no longer be able to climb a flight of stairs to stock up on button-downs and tees. Hickoree's Floor Two, the aptly-named store that sells fresh-as-hell menswear and fancy man-cessories, is closing.
"Floor Two will be open through Sunday, 10/18, after which we'll close our doors — but Hickorees.com will continue to live online," the above Instagram, which depicts the store when it first opened in October 2011, is captioned in part. "To thank all of you for your loyal support over the years, we'll be offering a 20% discount on all in-store purchases now through Sunday, along with complimentary beers in the shop all weekend. Please stop by and help us bid farewell to Floor Two!"
But it's not all bad news: They're planning to focus on Hickoree's sister (brother?) brand downstairs, The Hill-Side, and open a flagship store in the space formerly occupied by home goods store Joinery, which closed back in August. When it opens sometime later this month, it'll be home to The Hill-Side's collection of menswear, as well as select Hickoree's products. Bros of South Williamsburg, you're safe for now.
