After 20 years in business riley. on Damen in Bucktown has announced with an email last night that it has lost its lease and will be closing. The owner, Stephanie Riley notes in her email that she was married last April to the sweetest, most wonderful man and around that time, the building was sold and the rent was rising. The store will close at the end of May.
So what this means is that everything in the store right now is on sale. Stephanie is calling this "the big lost our lease sale." As of yet, the news has not been made public so there is plenty of opportunity to shop great merchandise at great prices before word gets out.
