According to the Post and Courier, Lacoste will be closing down their only South Carolina retail location. The store in Charleston will close on January 25th, 10 years after it opened. This means the nearest Lacoste store for Charleston residents is in North Carolina. That’s quite the drive!
If you are looking for a convenient place to buy vintage Lacoste (or even new Lacoste) fashion, then Ebay is a good place to start. Be warned, however, that there have been a lot of reports of fake Lacoste and Izod items being offered for sale there. While I’ve never personally experienced this, you should definitely communicate with the seller to make sure that you are getting genuine goods. See my post on How to Identify a Fake Lacoste for some hints on ensuring that the item you are purchasing is real.
