Considering that Bushwick is still somewhat virgin territory when it comes to massive retail enterprises, it’s no great surprise that one of the few clothing stores in town, Mary Meyer, has had its inventory completely picked over in the wake of Black Friday. Bushwickians of every fashion sensibility lined up as early as one this afternoon to take advantage of incredible savings at as much as 5% off.
Mary Meyer, who had previously merged with Beacon’s Closet, but chose to maintain her original outpost right off the Morgan stop, told The Burning Bush, “I know I’m basically the only game in town when it comes to Black Friday specials. No one else is offering the steals that I am. Not even Vice Versa–and especially not Beacon’s. And Fox and Fawn, well, they just don’t have a very prime location, now do they?”
And, for as conceited as the statement may sound, she’s absolutely right. It only took about forty minutes for Meyer’s already minimal amount of stock to sell out, leaving the store completely bare of any product. Meyer assured, however, “I’m having some kids in the Bronx make me some new stuff as we speak, so the store should be fully stocked again by Monday.” Those who did not manage to take advantage of the sale at Mary Meyer were forced to go to the now highly démodée boutique, Norma Core, where the looks are decidedly less tailored–though ideal for winter bodies in need of tarp-like constructions.
