Over the break, the Bed-Stuy blog posted about a designer-discount store on Marcus Garvey between Decatur and Fulton that sounds worth checking out—if you can get there when it’s open. The shop, which opened on Black Friday 2008, is called CloseOut Kings, and according to Bed-Stuy blog, it “feels like an urban chic or European boutique store” and is “stuffed with recognized name brand treasures, if you’re willing to take a few minutes to sort and sift.” BSB saw some Ralph Lauren ladies’ sweaters, Michael Kors sheets and other goodies. But beware: “One tip to note is their business hours aren’t consistent,” the blog warns. “If you can catch them while they’re open, this may be your next go-to shop for brand names at discount prices.” Has anyone else checked this place out?
