ONLINE—Sale-adverse design store Moss is having a sale! It's online and will last a week. Check out their emailed announcement: "Moss is famous for never having a sale, but every once in a while our overworked but ever alert staff finds something in our vast and attractive warehouse which we know we just won't be able to put back on display any time soon. They have convinced us to offer these fabulous but somewhat neglected items to you at a remarkable savings over their normal retail price. But only online. Supplies of these items are always limited, as is the time they will be on offer. First come, first served. Avoid disappointment. If you want it, get it now. And don't forget, you'll have our warehouse staff to thank." Kind of odd, right? [RackedWire Inbox]
BOCOCA—A reader writes, "Posting in the comment section of the Fairway Shuttle entry of Brooklyn Heights Blog that the Trader Joes on Court St in Brooklyn has fallen through?" Scroll down to the end of the comment thread here to take a gander at the dastardly remark. Our take on the whole matter is please God no. But seriously now, the TJ's really is a done deal. Come on, there was a parade with a steel drum band to announce the grocery store's move to Brooklyn. [RackedWire Inbox]
