“Isn’t shopping in a Barneys at Saks sort of like browsing a Nike section at an Adidas shop or grabbing a Whopper at the home of the Big Mac? It’s confusing to the taste buds and redundant in the Darwinian order of things.” @VVFriedman

30 years ago the Berlin Wall came down. I was living in Paris and got on a train and went to see history. There was so much unity and possibility in the air. May we get there again.

Attention anyone with a Barney’s gift card; it’s only good until Nov 7 according to the terms of the liquidation. You’d better start shopping quick.

Barney’s “liquidation sale is expected to last for a limited time only as the firms work to quickly sell through all inventory during the upcoming holiday seasonl” - Prada, Chloe, Gucci etc must be over the moon. (Not,)

The Barney’s sales begin: “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for its most loyal customers to buy items that rarely go on sale at markdown prices. We encourage shoppers to visit their nearest Barneys before this highly exclusive merchandise sells out” - the liquidators

Authentic Brands, the licensing firm that bought its name, says: - NYC flagship store will be "evolving" into a "pop-up retail experience" with boutiques & art - Welcome "Barneys New York at Saks" https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/01/business/media/barneys-bankruptcy-authentic-brands.html … w @VVFriedman

And finally, all the details are in about what exactly is happening with @Barneys. Here's the first report.

This morning the fate of Barneys will be decided in bankruptcy court: “It’s potential retail mayhem. The only other time we have seen a major liquidation outside of the regular sale season was after 9/11" - with @sapna -

the fate of Barneys is set to be determined tomorrow in bankruptcy court. if the current bidder wins, we could be seeing historic liquidation sales of lux goods at all 7 Barneys stores in mere days – and broader “retail mayhem” https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/30/business/barneys-bankruptcy.html … with @VVFriedman
