Hello Kitty Shop Getting New Flooring Ahead of Rumored Retheme at Universal Studios Florida

The Hello Kitty Store has closed temporarily while undergoing re-flooring. We recently reported that eventually the store will be rethemed.

Red curtains hang at the entrance to the shop. We would assume they are placing a plain, generic flooring because they are phasing Hello Kitty out, with plans to close the Hello Kitty Shop permanently in the future.

All of the props and merchandise have been moved into the Silver Screen side of the store. This is another indication that the shop is not yet closing for good.

The exterior facade is still intact, including the Hello Kitty props in the window displays.
