The Majestic Store

The Majestic Store (Everything for Men!) is-or was-a clothing store located in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood. It's right underneath the L tracks, and has been there for years and years. I never saw it open for business when I lived in the neighborhood, although there were some clothes in the windows. My understanding was that the store closed down either because the owner owed a ton of back rent, or because the roof was leaking. I don't believe it's reopened since.

Although the sign is clearly a sixties or seventies item, the building itself dates to the 1920's, and features some really nice terra cotta details.
