Men’s clothing shop to close after 47 years

American Pie, the men’s clothing shop at 198-200 Chiswick High Rd, is closing down after 47 years.

Closing down sale notices appeared in its windows recently and Bashir Mohammed, the shop’s owner, confirmed to The Chiswick Calendar that the shop would be closing permanently.

Bashir said he will be retiring, as he approaches his 74th birthday in March.

“There’s nothing more to it than that. No financial or trading issues” Bashir said.

All staff at the shop will be made redundant, according to one senior member of staff working there. Staff said American Pie will close its doors for the final time towards the end of February.

In 2022, American Pie’s sister shop Collection closed down, after Bashir and his wife could not agree an extension to the shop’s lease with the landlord.
