From the mailbag: "Strolling through Soho on my Sunday afternoon trying to spend my hard-earned cash I found out that the NEW Hickey store in Soho (96 Grand St) had to close down due the 'ceiling malfunctions'. I looked inside and the ceiling panels were falling off. The employees out on the street would not let me take a picture =(. The whole thing was pretty funny." [Racked Inbox]
