After seven years, storeowner Ashley Hanosh has decided to close up shop at the Lower East Side's Honey in the Rough. She writes in an email sent around to customers today: "It has truly been a joy servicing you and shopping together. With bittersweet feelings I am writing to announce that the time for Honey in the Rough as a Women's Clothing Shop is coming to a close Sunday August 25th. I saw bittersweet because even though this chapter is ending, a NEW and EXCITING chapter is beginning!!!"
She doesn't go into further detail yet on what that is, so you'll have to stay tuned. In the meantime, the store is hosting a a major sale, where all clothing is 70% off and all jewelry is 20% to 50% off. She adds, "I hope with the evolution of the new shop, many of you, if not all of you, will still have reason to shop with me and to show your pretty face!"
