MyUpperWest reports that the markdowns at Filene's Basement have just increased. Instead of offering 30% to 50% off, they're now taking 40% to 60% off. Writes our uptown blogger friend, "I feel like once you get past that '50% off' threshold, things start to get interesting. It may very well have been my imagination, but when I walked by yesterday after the new signage was up, the store certainly seemed busier." [MyUpperWest]
