Oh, dear. Less than six months after it opened, the Saint Laurent boutique in the Gold Coast has been robbed. According to The Chicago Tribune, the store was cleaned out of more than $100,000 worth of merchandise, including purses, shoes, and clothes.
Local police told the paper that a dark SUV pulled up outside the shop at around 3 a.m. this morning, and robbers broke the front window before rushing into the store and doing their damage. Read the whole story here. And, um, be very suspicious about any crazy good deals you spot on current Saint Laurent merchandise.
