hyp-NO-tique?!?!

what has happened to curtis's first store??? if you aren't familiar, hypnotique has been a staple in 5 points for years and is now never open. this has been going on now for over a year! it's sitting there, with sparse merchandise and a few broken mannequins. why? wolfgang, curtis's other store, is what really brings in the bacon. it's a great store with alot of great lines and it's really an asset to the neighborhood! that store is now a combination of the former satu (women's) and old wolfgang (men's only). it's now all under one name. curtis recently opened a new store in gainesville and maybe that is where he's putting all his energy/capital but the merchants aren't the only ones wondering what's going on with this prime retail space. customers are always wondering what happened to hypnotique. leave the space for someone that will actually put it to good use and be an asset to the community. why is he just letting that space sit there and rot? it really pulls that end of the block down. just wondering what's going on. does anyone want to enlighten me? i say either shape up or close up, completely.

No clue about Hypnotique, but as of today, Heartworks has closed.

I've often wondered this same thing - Hypno used to be the "cheaper" alternative to Satu but it has been a shell for so long now. It is in a primo spot though and should probably vacate if it's never going to re-open. Sad, it's an "older" 5 Points store that has fallen by the wayside...like Heartworks...
