A second-handed store at a New York City second-store chain was forced to close after the Superstorm Storm Sandy caused extensive damage to its facilities.
The chain, Saks Fifth Avenue, said Wednesday that the store was closing Wednesday, as customers waited to return to the store for the holidays.
The store, which opened in 2013, is a favorite spot for tourists.
It’s unclear when the second-hope shop will reopen, though Saks said in a statement it will reopen on Dec. 14.
“We appreciate the community’s patience as we begin to repair and restore our historic storefronts,” the statement said.
“As a result, we are opening Saks on Broadway, located in Lower Manhattan, at 6th Avenue and 5th Avenue, in Manhattan, on December 14.”
Saks, which is owned by Japanese investment firm KKR, closed its second- and third-floor stores in New York in December 2014, amid the SuperStorm Sandy.
In February, it closed a fourth-floor store in Manhattan.
The company said it expects to reopen stores in its home state of New York by the end of next month.
