It pains us to see sad faces on the street like this, alas, it is the business of fashion we suppose. The closure of Betsey Johnson in WTP is looming in the next few weeks and prices are being slashed again and again. Look for skirts, dresses, bags, evening dresses, tops marked from 50-70% off.
Shopkeep, Trevor tells us that it was surprising that Betsey HQ decided to close everything all at once. That was the part that stung. For months leading up to the announcement, the store crew saw visuals budgets being cut and small things throughout the daily operations that made them realize what was happening. He says the most recent shipment containing mostly bags and tops came from a few other smaller stores that have already closed.
