Since Nipsey Hussle’s passing, fans have swarmed the Marathon Clothing store to purchase merchandise. The clothing store, which was the site where the late rapper was murdered, has garnered much traction since his passing with reports of the store obtaining over 2 million orders and quickly running out of stock. The latter only further demonstrates the love and support the community had for the slain artist. Now, a recent update by XXL indicates the Marathon Clothing store has a number to tie with the major spike in sales.
The precise numbers underlying the statements involve over $10 million dollars in sales. The confirmation came from an affiliate of Hussle’s team. While the actual and physical store is closed down, the online store continues to receive quite the demands. Fans have and continue to crowd the website to buy. Furthermore, the source cites hoodies, hats, and t-shirts as the best sellers.
Both fans and supporters were thanked via a heartfelt post shared by The Marathon Clothing’s official Instagram: “Thank you to everyone who’s placed an order with us these last couple of weeks.
