"The whole mass was abandoned here in the fallout of Brooks Brothers' bankruptcy filing and sale last year, the scraps of a retailer that made nearly $1 billion in sales in 2019," reads the story. "Ever since, the couple that owns the warehouse, Chip and Rosanna LaBonte, has been scrambling to figure out how to get rid of it all." {The New York Times}
