The Profit - Hatbox: A Modern Haberdashery Update

Tonight on The Profit, Marcus Lemonis is in Austin, Texas to make a deal with Hatbox: A Modern Haberdashery.  This episode is being advertised as a "lost" episode of The Profit that is now airing at a later date.  Hatbox is owned by Lauri Turner and while Marcus is there, he is having trouble getting answers to a lot of his questions about the business.

Let's take a look at some information related to Hatbox: A Modern Haberdashery as well as what kind of deal was made on the show.

News and Links Related To The Company:

  • Here is the opening video for the episode from the CNBC website. 
  • Here is the Hatbox website and Facebook page.
  • The website does have an online store, but there does not appear to be many items available online.
  • A Haberdashery is described on the website as a  "specialty-clothing store focused on accessory items such as hats, gloves and scarves."
  • Here is the evolution of the store from their website, "Hatbox began in the Montrose District of Houston in 1974. Originally Vertigo Inc., the store began as an innovative gift and art retailer in the heart of Houston's Museum district. After 8 years of rapid growth, founder, Lauri Turner, moved the store to Austin and the long road to haberdashery began. For the next 20 years Vertigo went from gift retailer, to custom clothier, to accessory specialty and now, modern haberdashery."
  • The Hatbox has a lot of photos on their social media pages of celebrities that come into the store.

The Deal From The Episode Plus Post-Show Updates (this will be updated continually):

  • The Deal - Obviously there was no deal as this was a "lost episode."  Marcus didn't feel comfortable being stern with owner Lauri Turner.
  • Hatbox is still open and operating in the same location.
