The ceiling collapsed at the Marc Jacobs store in Greenwich Village on Saturday, and a large light fixture fell from the ceiling, destroying handbags, scarves and other luxury merchandise, the New York Times reported. No customers were in the store at the time and employees were unharmed.
“It just started cracking,” one of the employees said of the ceiling.
The store remained closed for the remainder of the day and the company’s press representatives did not respond to email.
Some out-of-towners were left disappointed by the closure.
“I’m shocked, really shocked,” said Sayaka Mochino, a visitor from Japan. “I want the iPad case, but they’re closed.” [NYT]
