Universal Gear is closing their midtown Atlanta location. After opening a few years ago, Universal Gear seemed to have been doing a good job appealing to their mainly gay male clientele in the midtown area, but with the downturn in consumer spending, the store has suffered in the sale of its core inventory. A liquidation sale is currently in progress with a wide assortment of items still in stock. They are currently scheduled to be closed as of the first week of 2009. Repeat Atlanta!
