Nipsey Hussle’s clothing store, The Marathon, has experienced a surge in sales following the rapper’s untimely death.
XXL reports that at least $10 million worth of clothing and accessories have been purchased from the store. Supporters flocked to the clothing store after Nip was assassinated right in the store’s parking lot. The store was also memorialized in his honor. But the majority of the sales come from hoodies, hats, and t-shirts purchased online.
The massive amount of orders has slowed down production and shipping at The Marathon store, but Nipsey Hussle’s family and friends are all thankful for the love. The folks continuing the marathon have announced that the physical location will be closed down until they catch up with orders.
“Thank you to everyone who’s placed an order with us these last couple of weeks. We appreciate the unprecedented outpour of support. It means a lot to our team and family,” the Marathon store wrote on Instagram. “We are working around the clock to fulfill every order placed. We ask for your patience as we get everything fulfilled and shipped out to you.”
“Additionally, our flagship store is closed right now,” the post continued. “But our online store is open 24/7 to serve you and is the only authorized retailer of our brand. Once again, thank you for your support.”
