Late last Friday, the Oprah Store closed its doors forever. Our midwestern sibling reports, "The store, which sold knick-knacks, African treasures, pastel colors and the famed items from Oprah's Closet, spent its last days in business organizing inventory and packing remaining products in plastic boxes." There also appeared to be a major moving sale: T-shirts were going for $2, $3 if they had long sleeves. [Racked Chicago]
