The Rugby outpost at 390 Bleecker Street has just about seen its day, as The Shophound reports that it'll be closing up shop tomorrow. As a refresher, Ralph Lauren announced back in November that it would shutter the label early this year. The University Place store will remain open until the beginning of February, and will receive whatever merchandise is left from the Bleecker Street store.
Although it doesn't sound like there's much left at either location. The Shophound adds, "It's hard to imagine either store lasting too much longer, as shoppers have already nearly stripped the shelves of both stores bare thanks to the storewide 40% off promotion designed to clear out the defunct label's goods." No time like the present to pillage whatever's left.
