Touchables, an intimates boutique in Manayunk and Abakus Takeout, a men's streetwear shop in Chinatown, are an unlikely coupling for a blog post; so what do they have in common? They're both shuttering, and both are clearing out inventory with a closing sale.
"After 5 incredible years in Chinatown, Abakus Takeout will be closing its door officially on Sunday, June 9, 2013," says the Abakus Takeout blog. The good news: Starting today, the store's selection of apparel (think men's labels like Publish, 10.Deep, and The Quiet Life) will be 50% off. In similar news, Touchables is promoting discounts of 50% and up as the bra store enters its final days on Manayunk's Main Street. For more store openings and closings, follow this link.
