It's a Sad, Sad Day.

This morning I woke up to one of the most upsetting emails. It contained the picture below. 


Could it be true!?!?!? All Betsey Johnson stores are closing!?!?!? Such a bummer! 

Honestly, it isn't that surprising. The last year or so I really haven't been impressed with her collections. But still! I can't believe they are going out of business! What girl isn't drawn to that bright pink store every time they walk into Somerset? Even girls like me, that don't like pink, can't stay away! Hell, I even know plenty of guys that enjoy going in there just to see the cute girls on staff. And let's be honest boys, if you buy a girl something Betsey for any occasion, they will love you forever. Or at least like you for a while.

Nonetheless, the store will be no more. As you can see on the flier, right now everything is 20-50% off. It sounds like Betsey's merchandise will still be available at department stores and a few of her shops in NYC might stay open. So at least we will still get to buy her gear. I will still miss going in to her stores and looking at all of the pretty and fun things, wishing that I could afford them all. 

If you want more info on Betsey's bankruptcy and store closings, here is a good article I found.

The two nearest Betsey Johnson stores are at Somerset Mall on the North side and Twelve Oaks in the newer addition by Nordstrom. If you need me in the next few weeks, I'm sure you can find me at the Somerset store pretty much every day!
