Venerable department store chain Lord + Taylor, which recently had the bright idea to sell itself to online clothing rental outfit Le Tote, has now filed for bankruptcy protection.
It also ran this full-page ad in yesterday’s Boston Globe.
Nowhere in all that advertising eyewash (which is actually an insult to saline solution everywhere) does L+T reveal that it has closed every one of its stores in the Greater Boston area.
Call the roll.
- Burlington Mall, 1320 Burlington Mall Road, Burlington, Massachusetts
- Natick Mall, 1245 Worcester Road Natick, Massachusetts
- Prudential Center, 760 Boylston Street, Boston, Massachusetts
- South Shore Plaza, 250 Granite St., Braintree, Massachusetts
As the local pearl clutchers might say, O My Lord + Taylor!

This DePrisco ad ran in both papers:
So did this Marshalls ad:
Old friend Mo Vaughn also bought space in the locals to express his condolences, but the graphics were different. Here’s the Herald version:
And the Globe one:
In addition, the Globe featured two ads that did not appear in the Herald. First was Lord & Taylor, which is no big surprise (see Bloomingdale’s/New York Post story here).
Also absent from the Herald was this ad, which is a surprise:
Just not, apparently, with the readers of our feisty local tabloid.
