To break down markdowns into groups, handbags were 10% off, outerwear was 40% off, and shoes were 50% off. Everything else, including women's and men's apparel, was reduced 10~40%. On the main floor of Loehmann's UWS branch, I found tons of jeans in addition to merchandise from Theory. The denim section was mostly comprised of Hudson Jeans and there were various styles like white skinnies, dark washes, and colored cottons. All jeans were 30% off the lowest ticketed price.
As I mentioned earlier, items from Theory took a big chunk of ground floor space. Amongst the clearance carts, racks, and bins, I found knit tops, office trousers, fitted blazers, tweed jackets, button down shirts, and much more. Unfortunately, discounts weren't so impressive. Though the selection was abundant, shoppers were only given an additional 20% off. What that translates to is: the ink navy blazer in the 4th photo below was priced $120 while the tweed jacket in the 5th photo was priced $184.
Downstairs, I found roughly 10 racks of shoes discounted 50% off. There were no big designer brands and certainly nothing appealing. As for handbags, I spotted only a few leather bags from no-name brands. Again, nothing worth mentioning.
It's reported that Loehmann's will permanently close their stores in March. Disappointingly, I was told no additional discounts would go into effect before the final closing. Unless you have a wonderful nostalgic memory and want to give the 92 year old company a personal farewell, I don't recommend dropping by.
