Soula, the boutiquey shoe store on Fifth Avenue between Degraw and Sackett Streets, closed on Sunday after five years on the avenue.
Run by Rick Lee, a former shoe buyer for Barney's and merchandising director at Cole Haan, the small store sold quality footwear for men, women, and kids. The merchandise changed regularly according to the most up-to-date styles, and prices were always reasonable.
Here's the note left on the door:
"At the end of the day on Sunday, July 22, we will be closing this location. Please visit our Smith Street store or our new Williamsburg location, opening at the end of August.
All store credits will be transferred to our Smith Street store.
Thank you Park Slope for five great years and looking forward to seeing you at our other locations!"
