My friend The Recessionista is reporting that The Limited stores are closing for good, and that means now's your chance to score some deals before the clothing chain shutters their doors forever.
According to The Recessionista, you can find deals up to 80% off in stores, and up to 50% off online. Be forewarned, though, that all sales are final, and expect big delays in shipping and processing.
I have mixed emotions over The Limited's closing...on the one hand, I remember shopping at The Limited as far back as the eighties when I believe they were owned by the same company that owns Express: The two stores were side by side at the HIP (Harlem Irving Plaza) where my family shopped when I was growing up. The Limited was the place to get workwear and other grownup attire, while Express was the cool store for going-out tops and party dresses.
Over the years, The Limited never really evolved or did anything exciting. The few designer and celebrity collabs they did were generic for the most part. I don't think they did a great job engaging bloggers or using social media. For what it's worth, I never did an "Off the Rack" post for The Limited because there were always other more interesting places to shop on my infrequent mall trips.
Will you guys miss The Limited? What are your memories of this store?
