What will kill the Row is rent"”the cost of rent.
The irony is that the traditional companies on the Row which cater to well off can not afford the new higher rents, but the chains and brands that make lesser clothing for the masses can.
In the end, the traditional Row inhabitance will move, evolve or die. Which may be a good thing as it would get rid of the middle man and people can deal directly with the cutter rather than the house.
