SOHO—Want an additional 10% off at tomorrow's Helmut Lang sample sale? Just retweet this tweet from the brand and show proof that you did at the register. As a reminder, the sale opens at 10am at 93 Mercer Street, and will probably look a little something like this. [Helmut Lang/Twitter]
UPPER WEST SIDE—Today is a dismal day for independent gift shops that have been open for two decades. First, news broke that Mxyplyzyk has closed for good in the West Village; now, My Upper West reports that the boutique card and gift shop Card-O-Mat on Broadway is also closing. The artile adds that they'll stay open until they sell the remaining merchandise, which is currently all discounted. [MUW]
