Good Morning readers. We awoke to a notice from N Boutique that they have closed the new Lenox Avenue location. This is a huge shock to us! Another intrepid blogger actually saw the move happening last night and reported it on Twitter, but the official word came from the owners themselves today. They will be offering online sales in January of next year. In the meantime we will have to find other local stores for your holiday gift giving needs. We will be posting a list of local shops next week.
We are a bit concerned about the preponderance of eateries and the lack of small businesses in the neighborhood. Seems that they should go hand in hand. What do you think? Leave your comments below.
You can read the heartbreaking message from N Boutique below:
It is with great sadness that we have decided to close the Lenox Avenue Store.
However, we will relaunch our online store in January 2011. The webstore will include
a number of items found in the shop along with our men & women’s private label collection.
What may appear like a sudden move is actually the result of months of costly legal battles
with a landlord who presumably has other plans for the space that may include a restaurant.
We could have continued through the rest of December, but holiday sales have been sluggish
and we felt it best to utilize our time and resources rebuilding our website/webstore.
You can expect to receive updates regarding the relaunch at the beginning of the year.
We thank you so very much for your support throughout the years–it means so much to us–and we look forward
to offering you more of what N is known for via our online store in January.
