Sabon has closed its location on the Upper West Side – thanks to Upper West Sider and Joseph Manghise for letting us know.
The beauty supply store was located at 2052 Broadway, between 70th and 71st Streets. The store sold soaps, lotions, moisturizer and perfume for both men and women. They also offered soap making classes.
Sabon’s website states that they filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in May to allow them “to shed unprofitable areas of our business all the while keeping up with your expectations.”
Regarding Sabon’s other locations, the website also states that they’ve been in the city for 15 years and intend on staying, though their number of stores will be reduced. They “are currently in negotiations with our landlords and we will let you know which stores will remain open.”
The store locations which are currently listed on Sabon’s website include 1371 Sixth Avenue (56th Street), 78 Seventh Avenue (15th Street), 630 Old Country Road (in Garden City), and 458 Broadway (Soho – Grand Street). View contact info and hours for all stores here.
