Barneys New York Will Close at NorthPark Center

Ugh. The headline says it all. And the Morning News has a bit more information. But Barneys New York is closing its only department store in Texas.

In a statement, NorthPark said the mall’s “hope for Barneys was that their merchandise mix would complement the offerings of our other retailers, and that their prime location within the shopping center and within the city would enable them to thrive.”

Whelp. Guess that didn’t happen.

I’ve always heard Dallas is the fashion capital of the south. Are we on track to losing that title? Austin at least has a Barneys Coop. Maybe they’ll soon be the best?

    Dallas is still the fashion capital of the south; this says more about Barney’s than anything else.

    $325 polo shirts. One doesn’t have to be stupid to have a fashion sense. What took so long to close for the 2nd time?

    Guess the joke’s on me. I opened an account there this morning.

    Worst service in NorthPark – you would have to send up a flare to get anyone to help you. Too busy flirting with each other and looking like work was beneath them. Nordstrom’s it is not.

    Impossible for Barney’s to survive next door to Neiman’s. Barney’s could survive if they could match Nieman’s service, but they would never thrive; Dallas is loyal to the hometown brand.

    for pete’s sake, they were worthless and weak.
    i agree, they were too busy flirting with each other.
    move along, nothing of interest here.

    Obviously they did not get the message the first time they were in Dallas…it might work in NYC it never worked here!

    The Barney’s in NYC is the only store location that’s worth it. I think Dallas shoppers are used to good customer service, style, and value for what we are buying.

    Terrible service, high prices, who needs it?

    I never saw any customers inside the store. I’m surprised it stayed open as long as it did.
