We have received conformation that the remodeled Dior boutique will be opening on 57th Street on December 9. At that time, the Madison Avenue store will close.
In light of the big move, Dior sales associates are unsure of this season's sale schedule. We are told, all the merchandise from Madison Avenue will move to 57th street but can't imagine the boutique moving an old collection. Some sales people say the markdown period will be truncated and start on December 1. Other Dior employees speculate, there will be no boutque sale and the winter merchandise will be swiftly shipped to outlets.
Needless to say, we will be following the fate of Dior's winter 2010 merchandise and the new boutique opening. I think it's fair to say that we will all miss the Lady Dior scaffolding... and the Madison Avenue boutique.
