It's been a hard year for some retail brick and mortar stores. Following the footsteps of Wet Seal, American Apparel, Nasty Gal and now Payless, BCBG has filed bankruptcy. Though this news is saddening, it comes with great discounts. I went to check the closing sale at the Madison ave. location earlier this weekend.
The store has 5 floors. Everything is on sale including the fixtures, furniture, and decor. Current season items are 50% off. Sale items are an additional 30% off. There is a rack of Herve Leger dresses at 50% off on the third floor. Not only is there apparel on offer, but accessories, home goods, handbags, and footwear is available as well. Some bargain pieces include the Fairfax black satin heels for $34.30; scarves for $21; belts for $14; a blush blazer for $61; and a wine stopper for $10.
I wasn't too impressed with the markdowns on apparel, but most of the footwear is reasonably priced for a closing sale. The fourth floor has tons of shoes and some bold styles you can wear for fashion week!
The store is opened every day from 10-5. They do not have an exact closing date, but I was told they will have the sale until April.
