Farewell, Filene's: Dry Your Tears At These Just-As-Good Discount Stores

shop-slide
Today in Sad Shopping News: Filene's Basement stores are closing around the country, and three of those stores are right here in our city. We've spent countless (really long) lunch breaks, weekend mornings, and post-work evenings scouring the racks of the Dupont Circle, downtown 14th Street and Mazza Gallerie stores, and have scored some incredible finds over the years (Tibi trousers and Alexander Wang tees, we're looking at you!). But don't fret — we've got your bargain-loving backs. Behold: Our handy-dandy cheat sheet to the best area discount stores to fill Filene's 80%-off shoes (once the doors close in January 2012, that is).
