Come summer, you see retailers around the city leaving the doors of their stores propped wide open in the hopes of enticing shoppers in with blasts of frigid air conditioning. In protest of this decidedly carbon-non-neutral trend we bring you, This Store Blows, highlighting the city's worst offenders. Want to join forces with us? Contributions, accompanied by a photo, are always accepted.
Stores: DKNY, Miss Sixty, Missoni, Dolce & Gabbana Date: 7/01/08. Time: 6:30PM. Why These Stores Blow: West Broadway's always an egregious offender: One place does it, and the entire street follows suit. Of course, frigid temps do make the prices of those sweet, sweet stripey Missoni dresses easier to swallow.
