Kembrel closes storefronts and ecommerce operation

Apparel and accessories retailer Kembrel is now closed, according to reports from Technically Philly and iphillychitchat.

Kembrel opened for business online in 2011 and later built a flagship store at 18th and Chestnut and a mens store at 12th and Locust.

Their focus was “unique independent designers” and clothing “made affordably in the USA”.

Kembrel's Chestnut Street flagship will be replaced by luggage retailer Blue Claw.
