"An assistant came in and grabbed them for Neil and Daryl [Hannah, his partner] on Friday," Watt tells PTBOCanada of his T-shirt line, which is available online and at his store Flavour Fashion in downtown Peterborough.

"We actually hid an 'N Y' in the design—his initials—as a tribute to him," Watt tells PTBOCanada.

Young may not have worn the Tee for his special concert Friday night in his home town of Omemee, but it was a cool moment the entrepreneur Watt won't soon forget.

"I have to be honest—when we developed the design for the shirt we always hoped to get one to Neil," he says. "We're huge fans and want to pay tribute in some small way. This was special."

Downtown Clothing Store Skirt Doesn't Look To Be Reopening

[UPDATE: Here is what's opening in that location now.]

----------

ORIGINAL POST

We reported back in June that downtown clothing store Skirt was temporarily closed. They indicated on the front door that they would be reopening August 15th, but that date has long come and gone. Now the Skirt logo sign has been removed and the store is looking sadly vacant. Their phone lines are no longer working either. Anyone know its status or what is going in here now?
