Back in March Ukrainian Village boutique SoKo narrowly avoided closing its doors when a customer offered to buy into the business. Now that white knight has apparently cantered away; an e-mail sent out by the store this week says that “we were never able to finalize the details” of the partnership and the shop is closing on the 29th. Everything is 40 percent off and owner Sheri Roney is also selling off fixtures like mirrors, rolling racks, shelving, and the like.
