BOSTON — After soaring in recent years, retailing in New England has thudded to earth along with the regional economy.
“Watching everything disintegrate so fast is very disheartening,” said Debi Greenberg, owner of Louis Boston, one of the city’s iconic luxury shops, which sells Marni, Dries Van Noten and other designers. “I have had people walk into the store and look around, puzzled, and say, ‘You’re not on sale?’ It’s such an odd feeling, like I should apologize or something. So I say, ‘Well, we do have a sale in January. Please come back.’”
