Thanks to a reader for sending.

Last month USA Today reported:

“Discount retailer Loehmann’s has filed for bankruptcy protection for the third time and plans to liquidate its business.

Loehmann’s traces its roots to 1921, when Frieda Loehmann opened the retailer’s original store in Brooklyn. It is known for its “Back Room,” where bargain shoppers search for designer clothes on the cheap.”

Looks like the last day will be February 7, 2014.

    I guess all the old school discounters like this and Filene’s, etc. can’t keep up with stores like Ross, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, etc.

    Or Nordstrom Rack.

    Maybe it’s the communal dressing room.
