This is the week Loehmann’s devotees have been dreaming about.
The discount designer clothing store announced that after three long months away, it was finally returning to Sheepshead Bay on February 11.
Regular Loehmann’s shoppers began receiving special $10 coupons last week heralding the store’s reopening at 2807 West 21st Street.
Loehmann’s was forced to temporarily shut down following a questionable blaze that struck stores inside the Loehmann’s Seaport Plaza on Emmons Avenue last year.
Fire marshals called the early-morning fire that broke out inside XO Creperie on November 21, 2009 “suspicious.”
Frieda Loehmann started the Loehmann’s business way back in 1921 right here in Brooklyn. Today, however, the Sheepshead Bay location is the only Loehmann’s outlet in the borough.
Loehmann’s can be found in 16 states, part of a national chain of more than 60 stores.
While popular with fashionable bargain hunters here in Brooklyn, critics have long maintained that the advent of Loehmann’s Seaport Plaza broke Sheepshead Bay’s special zoning district and forever destroyed the community’s fishing village theme.
