Nooooo. The Dallas Morning News is reporting that Barney’s New York (the only Texas outpost of the New York-based luxury retailer, besides a Co-Op in Austin) is closing its NorthPark Center store. I just experienced the full range of human emotions in about 2.5 seconds—sadness (because it’s such a beautiful place), rage (where else am I supposed to buy my REN moisturizer/drool over an very specific selection of clothes I’ll never own), and then a twisted sort of hope (is there a huge sale in our future?).
This is the second time Barney’s has departed our fair city. Again: sad.
