    Duroque Custom Neon and Lifestyle Boutique is Closing After 12 years in WeHo

    - Advertisement -

    Duroque Custom Neon and Lifestyle Boutique is set to close its West Hollywood location at 634-1/2 N. Robertson Boulevard after 12 years of operation. The store will liquidate its modern and pop art collection with discounts ranging from 40 to 70 percent.

    Owner Olga Rechdouni cites high rental costs as the reason for the closure. The last day of operations will be at the end of August when their lease expires, but the business will continue to operate online.

    Duroque, an art gallery concept, connects consumers to artists with a permanent art installation in a retail space. Rechdouni explains that the store started as a custom furniture shop and eventually incorporated custom neon art and works from local and international artists. “We began with interior design items, then custom furniture, and later neon signs,” Rechdoun told WEHO TIMES. “We started including art from international artists and created neon art for local artists. The community came to us for custom neon signs.”

    Duroque is renowned for creating popular neon artworks in West Hollywood, including the neon artwork for the Beaches WeHo sign and Sur Restaurant, which is located nearby. The store also collaborated with various artists post-COVID lockdowns.

    Always a fun spot to show visitors, but not surprised––Robertson is a bit of a mess with so many businesses closed and empty weed-filled lots.

    When an area loses the things that give it its “Mojo” – its specialness ( a 40 year old gay bar Oil Can Harry’s, Jewish Deli Greenblatts, this art gallery) it can devolve into a bunch of beige mcdonalds. There will be no reason to go there.

    Wow. Two business close in one day. Is that a record in this city? I mean, we’ve had a lot of business close over the last couple of years…but two in one day! Sad direction we’re going.

    And plenty of businesses are opening as well! I guess you wouldn’t know because you proudly announce you prefer to travel outside Weho to shop or dine. Sad direction indeed!
