Turns out, not everybody likes a Virgin. Virgin Mobile, which started its Chicagoland entry last year with a store on the Clark Street strip in the now gentrified part of Andersonville will close this first store. The store in Lincoln Park (the one with the Lady Gaga Shrine) will stay open as the Virgin Hotel is still under construction. Also, this is Richard Branson in drag.
