The owners of bedding and loungewear shop Nancy Koltes at Home have decided to take a vacay from the retailing world, a move that's not too surprising given the way sales have been recently. The brand's Nolita shop, previously filled with pretty, brightly-patterned Egyptian-cotton sheets, is now closed and empty, red sale signage peeling off the windows. Their web store is similarly barren. When we called the boutique to inquire about the closing, the resigned-sounding woman we spoke with told us that the company is simply "taking a break" and will be restructuring. The Nancy Koltes store is Beverly Hills is still operational, but not for long. They're planning on closing that location down—supposedly, for a remodel—soon.
