Upon hearing the news of Filene's Basement's bankruptcy, we stopped by the Union Square location to scope for any signs of liquidation. Turns out, the store has not begun the process yet, and employees are unsure of any definitive dates. According to customer service, "sales should continue till the new year, but we don't know." Guess we'll just have to sit and wait for any updates.—Katherine Park
