Looks like the Kardashians have finally been bitten by the craptastic economy.
After six years, Kourtney and her momager Kris are closing down their
overpriced children's boutique, Smooch.
Preggers wrote on her blog about the closing:
My mom and I opened our children’s clothing boutique Smooch six years ago. My grandmother has had a children’s boutique in LaJolla for 30 years now, and it was always a dream of my mom’s and mine to have a store of our own. I used to work in the store all day, every day, stay hours after closing and was obsessed with it…Smooch was my baby! The energy and love I put into the store truly paid off and in a weird way, the store really helped me deal with my father’s death…I put my feelings into the store!
After thinking about it long and hard, we have decided to close Smooch. This does make me sad, but I also know that I don’t have the time (especially now that I will have my baby boy to take care of) that the store deserves to be the Smooch that we created. It is just not the same without me and my mom there to run it.
Notice how she said "used to work in the store". Shouldn't have abandoned it for your 15 minutes of reality TV fame honey!
We're actually kind of surprised by the decision to close Smooch. Kourtney's about to pop and she could have pimped the hell out of that baby (which is going to happen regardless) with clothing from Smooch.
Oh well, they'll probably find some other way to make money without having to lift a finger. Like selling those baby pictures.
