Recession Drains Fashion from Henri Bendel in NYC

Posted on May 1, 2009

Henri Bendel, is planning to stop selling clothes this summer and focus
on accessories and beauty products as it struggles to lure shoppers
during a prolonged recession, says a news report.

“But Bendel, a division of Limited Brands,
is changing its business model,” reports today’s New York Times,  “from the department store that was
founded in 1895 to a more mall-like chain selling Bendel-branded beauty
and gift items, like an $18 box of tea in the company’s signature
brown-and-white stripes.”
