The Honus Wagner sporting goods store, a Downtown institution for decades, is closing its doors.

An employee confirmed this morning that the store will begin a going-out-of-business sale either later this week or early next week.

The store will shut down after that, at most 60 days after the sale begins, according to the employee.

Honus Wagner, currently located on Forbes Avenue, has been Downtown for 93 years. Store owner Murray Shapiro could not immediately be reached for comment.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
