Sorry to those who were looking to grab a pair of Swoosh from Nike this past weekend, as Niketown in New York City has been closed temporarily until further notice due to bedbug infestation. After Hollister, Abercrombie and Fitch, and Victoria's Secret, Niketown is the latest to fall prey to the army of cooties that are perhaps the only thing that has managed to get New Yorkers riled up and paranoid aside from the economic crash and recession
Niketown has been closed since Saturday, and did not reopen on Sunday. According to WWD, Nike could not be reached for a comment on Sunday, and so it remains unclear when the sportswear giant will be opening the doors to its destination stop in New York City. In the meantime, we do suggest dropping by 21 Mercer if they do carry the kicks or apparel you are looking for from the great Swoosh.
