Slim pickings at the last Uniqlo sale
SOHO—Uniqlo is having another go at a sample sale. It will run Friday, May 2nd through May 11th and items all over the store will be discounted (but the deep markdowns are to be found in the basement). They are promising $20 cashmere and merino sweaters for men and women; let's hope they deliver this time. [RackedWire]
BAY RIDGE—A Key Food is closing in Bay Ridge, and the Brooklyn Paper is there to get the 411. Well, kind of: no one from the store, or the company that owns Key Food would talk to BP editor Gersh Kuntzman. But the locals will, and predictably, they're not pleased. This will leave them with just a Food Town! Horrible! [Brooklyn Paper]
