NOHO—Skaters and snowboarders of New York City, rejoice. Zumiez has come to 626 Broadway for a limited time and is packed with scary good prices on brands like Empyre, Burton, DC, Element, Volcom and many more. We spotted exactly one thing in the store above $400, and that was a snowboard. T-shirts are going for between $10 and $30, Vans range from $40 to $60, hoodies hover around 44;95, and crazily printed skateboards start at $89.99. What impressed us most were the prices of the snowboarding gear: Boards were on sale for as low as $119 (without bindings). Skiing and snowboarding are really the only things this frigid weather is good for, so stop by before the shop closes December 30 (but don't cry if you miss it—a sale associate told us that they hope to open a permanent location soon.)—Lauren Frankfort
NEW YORK CITY—Teen Vogue poached one of our interns (those bastards!) so we're looking for more. Are you an aspiring reporter, possibly but not necessarily of college age, who wants to work for Racked? Duties include taking surreptitious pictures at sample sales, skulking around unfinished storefronts, and uploading dozens upon dozens of Street Scenes. As our sibling site Curbed likes to say, "The pay shall be zero dollars. The glory shall be extreme." To apply, send two writing samples and a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. We've also found ourselves in need of a photography intern whose schedule is flexible during Fashion Week (February 11th through 18th.) If you'd like to build up your portfolio shooting the shows and the surrounding circus, drop us a line with sample photos. [The Mgmt]
