Niketown Bitten By Bed Bugs



    Meeting Veterans’ Special Needs in Hospice

    Nike's flagship Midtown Manhattan store, Niketown, has reportedly been closed due to an infestation of bedbugs.

    A sign on the door says the store is "closed  until further notice."  The store was apparently struck by bed bugs, which have become an epidemic in the city.

    The company says they are taking the necessary steps to stop the problem and they hope to reopen soon.

    "Our primary concern is the well-being of our consumers and sales associates," Nike said. "We are taking all proper steps to eradicate the problem, and we expect the store to reopen shortly."

    Nike is the latest in a string of retail and commercial outlets to get bitten by bed bugs.

    The pests also recently invaded the Empire State Building, Google's New York City office, and Abercrombie and Fitch.
