And now the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.

1) East Village: Our hearts are breaking as we type this, Love Will Save the Day, which originally opened in 1966 and moved to its current location in 1983 at Second Avenue and E. 7 St. is closing. Racked reports the landlords tried tripling the rent in 2005 but the store negotiated a three-year lease. The store's founder passed away in August and, so, love will not only not save the day, it will tear us apart too unless a benefactor steps in.

2) FiDi: Century 21 is all lit up for the holidays and has entered the 21st Century by sending out mobile alerts. Seriously.

3) LES: Jellio, the whimsical home furnishings company has leapt from the internet to the LES, opening a pop-up at 139 Norfolk that will be open through December 23.

4) Boerum Hill: Re/Dress, the city's only plus-size vintage clothing store opened on Black Friday. It uses the same systems as Beacon's Closet and Buffalo Exchange, but bigger. It's at 109 Boerum Place.
