To the dismay of many budget shoppers and old school New Yorkers, Loehmann's has announced that it will be going out of business in March. Until then, there's a liquidation sale to shop—but not online. Even though the physical store on Seventh Avenue still has at least two months of life left, a saddened tipster pointed out that the company's e-commerce site is no longer taking orders. The website does advertise a "limited time" clearance sale of discounts up to 70% off that's shoppable at its 39 stores nationwide.
