Beyond Gotham shutting doors

A trendy Midtown boutique called Beyond Gotham is expected to close in mid-September — another victim of the poor economy.

Signs advertising a closing sale have already been taped to the windows of the store, which sells women’s clothing and accessories at 1215 18th St.

Located on a popular block in the Handle District, the boutique was going strong until about two years ago. Female customers who would buy new jewelry every time they had Christmas parties, weddings and other special occasions to go to aren’t making those purchases now, said an employee.

"Women are the first ones to stop buying for themselves in bad times," she said.

Rebecca Polstra and the store’s other owners had originally planned to close the store in mid-August. But the store will remain open longer so more inventory can be sold, said another employee.

Store hours, which have been cut back, are 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Sundays.

The owners closed the Beyond Gotham in Citrus Heights in March. The Midtown store originally sold mostly jeans and other clothing. Beyond Gotham then changed the inventory to focus on accessories including glittery rhinestone jewelry, purses, belts and other items.

"She worked very hard to make this a successful boutique," said one employee.

Polstra could not be reached for comment.
