The Six Most Heartbreaking Store Closures of 2014

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Here today, gone tomorrow—that's the name of the game for brick-and-mortar retail. And this year has seen some truly heart-wrenching store closures for reasons that run the gamut from rising rents to new ventures. Click through to the gallery to reminisce about some of the city's best that now only exist in our dreams (or on the Internet). Then make it a new year's resolution to treat your local boutiques with extra care in 2015 so they won't ever have to think about shuttering.
