After 20 years at 650 Madison Avenue on the corner of 59th Street, Crate & Barrel will end its run this weekend so, as you can imagine, there is quite a closing sale going on. Everything left in the store is currently 40% off with the likelihood of further reductions on the way, but be warned that there is not much left to buy. As Crate & Barrel is a chain with lots of locations, most of the current merchandise has been shipped off to other locations leaving some floor model furniture pieces and random clearance items in other categories scattered throughout the sparsely filled main floor (the second floor is now empty and closed). While it may not be the sale bonanza one might have hoped for, there always remains the possibility of finding a gem amongst the picked over, but don't tell us you weren't warned.
It looks like the store has closed already!
Originally announced to close after this weekend, our friends at Racked report that the doors are now shut, which is not especially surprising considering how little they had left to sell when we stopped in over the weekend. So long Crate & Barrel on Madison! Perhaps they will find a new uptown home. We would suggest looking on the other side of the park.
