On July 30, 1968, The Beatles’ Apple Boutique, a psychedelic clothing store located at 94 Baker Street in London, closed for business after seven months.
The band and its friends had the pick of the remaining inventory the night before, and 50 years ago today, the Apple Boutique employees were instructed to simply let people in off the street to take whatever merchandise they wanted. The store was closed that evening for good.
The store had a huge problem with shoplifting / theft.
We guess Love wasn’t the only thing people wanted for free.
Anybody ever go to the store / boutique while it was open?
