Though the cute shopper silhouette is still dangling outside its window, it appears that the Walton Street boutique Samantha has closed. On a stroll by the girly storefront, we noticed that it was empty, and—this kind of cinches the deal—for lease.
We don't know just when the closure happened (sorry if we missed the boat!) and couldn't find any official announcements on its social media channels. But alas, things are looking pretty official: the store's land line has been disconnected, and its website has expired.
