It is with sincere dismay that we inform the fashion savvy shopping public that Harlem’s now famed N Boutique in New York City is closing its doors. Â The following explanation was recently sent to all of their loyal customers and supporters.
“It is with great sadness that we have decided to close the Lenox Avenue Store. However, we will relaunch our online store in January 2011. The webstore will includeÂ a number of items found in the shop along with our men & women’s private label collection.
What may appear like a sudden move is actually the result of months of costly legal battlesÂ with a landlord who presumably has other plans for the space that may include a restaurant. We could have continued through the rest of December, but holiday sales have been sluggishÂ and we felt it best to utilize our time and resources rebuilding our website/webstore.
You can expect to receive updates regarding the relaunch at the beginning of the year.Â We thank you so very much for your support throughout the years–it means so much to us–and we look forwardÂ to offering you more of what N is known for via our online store in January.”
