Like many other indie boutiques which have fallen on the high-rent battlefield know as the Back Bay, Turtle is closing up shop just a year after relocating from the South End to a heavily-trafficked Newbury Street address. The store focused primarily on emerging designers and encouraging Boston to "come out of its shell." The space will shutter at the end of August, and until then, stop in to scoop up final sale items (most of which are under $50).'s Bargain Bin reports that there are still finds from brands including Eva Franco and Prairie Underground.
