Last week, Dagny + Barstow mysteriously shuttered its boutique on Bowery, with no details about whether or not the closing was permanent. Today, we spoke with store owners Meredith Blank and Emily Titelman via email, who broke the sad news.
Based on a number of reasons we have decided to close our business. As of right now there are no plans to reopen. We are so grateful for all of our incredible customers and thank you to Racked for all of your support over the years.
It's no secret that we've been pretty obsessed with this store since before it even opened, putting it both on our list of the city's most essential stores and our map of the best independent retailers. As one of our commenters put it in yesterday's post, "Best store in NYC for sure, and the girls are the sweetest...not the typical snobby type owner, but actually care in helping customers find that absolute must have piece!" You will be missed.
