PI Update: Apricot Lane Has Closed

This shopping location attached to the Mannequins building has seen several concepts come and go over the years.  Originally opening as trendy clothing store Changing Attitudes, the store was replaced with an Orlando Harley-Davidson store in 2005.
Of course Harley didn't know at the time that the clubs were going to be closed in 2008 and that foot traffic counts would drop substantially.  They finally were able to relocate to the West Side in 2011.  Another clothing store, Apricot Lane, opened in August of that year.  Always meant to be temporary, they didn't even paint the walls a different color.  We previously reported that they would be closing in August of this year when their lease expired.
But the website WDW Magic reported yesterday that they have now closed too.  This was the last retail location on Pleasure Island, not withstanding logo items available for sale in restaurants Raglan Road and Paradiso 37.
