Charlie Hustle pop-up shop coming to the Country Club Plaza
The Kansas City Royals’ surprise playoff run last fall was a boon for local vintage sportswear maker Charlie Hustle, whose trademark shirt — the “KC logo inside a heart” tee — could hardly keep up with demand as the Royals marched toward the World Series.
This year, with the Royals holding a comfortable lead atop the American League Central, another playoff run looks likely. And whereas last year customers had to order their Charlie Hustle gear online or at select local shops, this time around Charlie Hustle will have a brick-and-mortar store on the Plaza for shoppers to stock up at.
The pop-up shop will be located at 419 W. 47th St., across from Barnes and Noble. A rep from the company says they’re aiming to be open by September 25, in time for the Plaza Art Fair. It will stay open at least through the holidays.
Charlie Hustle was founded in 2012 by Chase McAnulty. Its website is here.
