Besides teen girls, The Real Housewives of Wherever and, well, dudes, guess who likes velour sweats with the word "Juicy" on the butt of the pants? Bedbugs! The Fifth Avenue Juicy Couture store has been closed because of the horrible pests—CEO Edgar Huber sent an email to the "Juicy Team":

As you may be aware we have temporarily closed the 5th Avenue location due to the discovery of bed bugs.

Our top priority is to protect our associates and our customers and we are moving swiftly and aggressively to address the problem. We expect to re-open the store later in the week and will keep you updated when we have specifics around the re-opening.

At this time there have been no other locations identified with this issue but we will continue to take all necessary precautions.


And an official statement says:

We wanted to inform the public and our consumers that we have temporarily closed the Juicy Couture Store at 650 Fifth Avenue due to the discovery of bed bugs.

Like other major retailers recently impacted by this issue, we are moving swiftly and aggressively to address the problem. We expect the store to re-open later this week.

The people who shop and work at the store are our top priority and we are taking all necessary precautions.

There are three other Juicy Couture stores serving New York City shoppers – 860 Madison Avenue, 368 Bleecker Street, 103 Fifth Avenue – and of course all merchandise is available 24-hours a day at www.juicycouture.com.


As the statement says, Juicy Couture is only of many retailers hit by this modern plague (, Victoria's Secret, Niketown ), and honestly, bedbugs are just everywhere.
