Scoop 75% Off

We are coming to the end of a long sale season. Today we hear that Scoop has marked down their Fall/Winter merchandise to 75% off. Our spies say that there is still a large selection, which does not mean good things for this retailer.

Rumors are that Scoop is being plagued with severe financial -- a.k.a. bankruptcy--troubles. Say it ain't so. I guess that's what happens when you are too slow to markdown in a difficult economic season.

Speaking of the difficult economy, my Facebook friend and fellow blogger, Andrew James of What is James Wearing?, is asking everyone to figuratively burn a bit of money in honor of the Chinese New Year and his very own stimulus package.

I say, in difficult times-- cash is king. If you've got it hold on to it. You never know when a great opportunity might present itself!

I was at Scoop in the meat packing district today and there was not a ton left on sale or a big selection of sizes. People were looking but not buying.

I've always found Scoop boring. The store of clones.
