Is this a good move? High end clothing boutique Louis Boston will be moving to the Seaport District/Fan Pier in Spring 2010. It's current location is between Newbury Street and Boylston Street. They have been in that space since 1988, so this is a big move for them. Will they be successful in Fan Pier? I don't know, but my guess is they'll be saving a substantial amount in rent. Here's a small quote from today's Banker & Tradesman.
According to Mayor Thomas M. Menino, Louis Boston will operate out of a modular trailer setup before moving into 20,000 square feet of permanent space.
