Fond Farewell to Allbirds As It Quietly Closes Its Philly Store on Walnut St For Good

Located at 1709 Walnut St, the store had closed for repairs, shortly after its CEO announced store closings.

Oof – it’s been a rough year for some DTC brands, hurting them at the brick-and-mortar level. Allbirds’ loss in particular hurts. They had the most friendly and helpful staff.

The Outdoor Voices on Walnut closed in February, and now sustainable footwear brand Allbirds – which had closed temporarily reported being closed for repairs – is not reopening. Both brands are part of a bigger trend that CNBC noted is affecting a number of brands that expanded to physical retail locations after succeeding online.

The Allbirds store in King of Prussia is open f you prefer to try shoes in person, and then there is always the online option. However, thinking of the staff and hoping the team stays in the neighborhood as they were/are the best.
