NEW YORK — Mark Lee, chief executive officer of Barneys New York, has agreed to meet with representatives from the Brooklyn chapter of Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network to discuss claims of racial profiling by two shoppers at the retailer’s Madison Avenue flagship here.
The meeting comes after two black New Yorkers filed notices of claim against Barneys over incidences in which they both claimed they were wrongfully detained after making expensive purchases at the store, setting off a firestorm of publicity.
