Friends, all of you who are Filene's Basement shoppers can take a deep sigh of relief. The rumors that the Dublin store are closing are false. Recently I have had several people tell me that the off price store is closing. Amazing how the rumor mill can spread rapidly. With twitter and face book it literally takes seconds for rumors to spread.

I was in the store on Sunday looking for shoes for my son. I did not see any signs of a store going out of business. Today I went back to return the shoes. Of course they were not what he had in mind. While there I was going to inquire about the stores status. Before I was able to ask I saw a stack of fliers on the registers.

The flier stated that Filene’s Basement is Back and Here to Stay!!!! To clarify this I went back to the Customer Service department. I asked if the rumor was true but they now are going to be able to remain open. The associate said that the rumor was false from the get-go. The reason they have posted the flyers around the store is to squelch the rumor that they were closing. They have had several inquires and felt they had to address the issue.

What they do want customers to know is that they are restocking new fall merchandise. They receive 2 deliveries a week. They are under new ownership by the SYMS Corporation and they are positioning themselves to be better than ever. They will continue to offer the famous Filene’s Basement designer brands that customers have become accustomed to. So spread the word that Filene’s Basement is alive and well. For now happy shopping!
