& Muscle Beach
Beach, 1982 - 1985
Appearances, 1983 - 1995
Ah, Shop the Curve, with that special atmosphere
that was retail Montrose. It was ever-changing,
of course but I'm highlighting two of its clothing stores.
in 1982, Muscle Beach showed up at a prime location on a corner,
with great visibility. Their first ad and TWT listing was 10/15/82.
And as it turned out, they did not advertize much
right was the last TWT listing, and interestingly, their listings for
their last year also gave a West Bellfort address; and
it looks like they closed in March 1985 and by mid-June Appearances
had moved into their (larger) space a few doors down
1983 - 1995
For a number of years Lynn
Richard operated a very nice men's clothing store
on Westheimer, and while the merchandise was good, more special was
atmosphere he brought to it. I remember it feeling more like a salon,
place, where you wished you could just stay for hours. Like he quoted
one of the articles, "my store is s social store."
Does anyone know what happened to Lynn? Please email me.
of these businesses really advertized that much
