Indochino to open in place of beloved Cobble Hill bookstore
Men’s clothing purveyor Indochino is slated to open its first location in Brooklyn this week, Brownstoner reported.
The company — which prides itself on “custom clothing for the modern man,” according to its website — will take up residence in the former BookCourt space at 161 Court St. The former wooden storefront has since been replaced by a new modern 2,500-square-foot one.
The beloved Cobble Hill independent bookstore closed its doors after 35 years at the end of 2016. It sold for $13.6 million, in comparison to the $499,000 that the original BookCourt owners originally put down for the space in 1996, according to Finance Department records.
The Court Street Indochino will be the business’ 39th location but only its fourth in New York.
