INFESTATIONS

Bedbugs Shut Down NY’s Niketown

Maybe they wanted running shoes, too? After the Empire State Building, the Time Warner Center, and Abercrombie & Fitch, Niketown in Midtown Manhattan Saturday became the latest high-profile location to fall victim to bedbugs. The five-floor store was closed down due to the infestation, leaving shoppers to discover it closed with brown paper in the windows, and a sign telling them it would stay shut, “until further notice.” "Ew!" said one prospective customer. "It makes you not want to go into stores. I'd rather shop online now than buy something and bring the bugs into my house."
