RI Selects: Bye-Bye USBluesware, a Retirement Celebration Sale

Rural Intelligence StyleUSBluesware, the women’s clothing store on North Street in downtown Pittsfield, will be closing for good on Saturday, February 27th. Owners Giora Witkowski and Linda Mitchell will be retiring from the retail store, which has provided a unique shopping destination in Pittsfield for gently used clothing and accessories from top designers.

A Retirement Celebration Sale, with discounts of up to 75% off, is now in full swing and will continue until closing day at the end of next month.  When Mitchell spoke to Rural Intelligence on Wednesday after closing, she said they had, in the pre-owned clothing category, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Armani, Escada, St. John Knits, and Dolce & Gabanna for up to 50% off their already deeply discounted prices, compared to new.  All shoes, new and pre-owned (by Stuart Weitzman, Escada, Furla, Farragamo, and Prada) are 75% off.  And there are many new clothes, handbags, scarves & shawls by designers whose names are not household words.  Most jewelry is new, though there are a few vintage things—all 25% off. 

“We hadn’t really planned on this,” says Mitchell.  “But I read that Persnickety Toys in North Adams was expanding, so I called them, and within a week, we had a signed lease.”
