Niketown Shuts Down From Bedbug Infestation

New, 2 comments

If you were planning on picking up some sweet athletic gear from Niketown today, you're gonna need to change your plans because it is shut down. The reason? Bed bugs of course! The tiny red terrors were discovered earlier today causing the East 57th Street Superstore to be shuttered. All those headbands and fabrics must be heaven for those bedbugs, but they are making our skin crawl. No word yet on when the store is set to reopen, and a statement from Nike says "Our primary concern is the well being of our consumers and sales associates. We are taking all proper steps to eradicate the problem and we expect the store to reopen shortly." [NYDN]
