Waiting for their clothes at a Zoots

Zoots line in Cambridge

Matt Cocco estimated 50 people waiting for the Porter Square Zoots to open one last time so they can get their clothes back - which had gone into limbo when the chain went bankrupt and locked all its doors a couple weeks ago.

Funny coincidence

I was just thinking about Samuel Beckett (online image of a sculpture reminded me of his play "Happy Days".)

You mean this isn't the line for Metallica tickets?

Zoots Zucks

I gave up on Zoots years ago, when my sports coats smelled no better after Zoots had allegecly dry cleaed them.

I can't imagine who this company just bailed on it's customers leaving them without clothes for many weeks. Reportedly some folks received clothes yesterday that still weren't cleaned,

Good riddance.

Should have stuck with the suburban/exurban market

I used to cycle on roads in places like Carlisle that were barely beyond campground access ways ... and the only other traffic tended to be a handful of luxury vehicles and Zoots trucks.

I didn't realize that they went to retail locations - seemed to me that they were doing quite a business in pseudorural places shuttling suits around. Their original business model was mostly pickup and delivery routes for places where getting to a dry cleaner was a hassle if you worked 60+ hour weeks and commuted a long distance.
