In two weeks, French Garment Cleaners will close its doors at 85 Lafayette Avenue for good after a decade in business. To prepare for the end, the indie boutique — typically stocked with designers like APC, Rachel Comey, Isabel Marant, Sea, Kenzo, and Rag & Bone — is offering up to 95% off everything that’s left.

Racked spoke with owner Greg Beyer, who said that while the neighborhood business had a wonderful run, French Garment Cleaners would not stay in its space when the ten-year lease ends in October. There will be one final chance to say goodbye to the store during a pop-up of sorts in September (more details to come). If you haven't shopped its closing sale, time is running out: Beyer confirmed that everything is almost gone.
