It’s confirmed: Restoration Hardware is moving into the old LouisBoston space on Boylston Street in the Back Bay.
The retail chain is definitely trying to go high-end, but the name still doesn’t seem to fit its targeted market. It doesn’t sound right.
But we wish them luck. They’re returning to the Back Bay after closing a shop there during the recession. It’s a sign of a slowly recovering economy.

P.S. — Shreve Crump & Low is moving from Boylston Street to Newbury Street, for all of you keeping track of Back Bay retail moves.
