British Clothing Brand FatFace Reportedly Eyeing Former Old Town Trading Post

(Updated at 5 p.m.) There’s no official word yet, but multiple sources have told ALXnow that British clothing and accessories retailer FatFace is looking at moving into the former Old Town Trading Post at 128 King Street.

A local commercial real estate source told ALXnow that FatFace is looking at moving into the location. Another source said FatFace was considering a lease but may not have signed one yet.

FatFace and KLNB — the commercial real estate service leasing the space — could not be reached for comment.

The retailer offers clothes designed in the UK with an emphasis on materials meant to last, as opposed to more cheaply-manufactured fast fashion. FatFace has a handful of stores in the United States, primarily located across New England, and other locations in partnership with department store Von Maur.

Signs for Old Town Trading Post remain on the building, but the souvenir shop closed in July 2017 according to Port City Wire.
