NEW YORK — Mary Epstein, a former buyer, died Dec. 26 in St. Vincent’s Hospital here. She was 94.
The cause of death was due to complications from a fall she suffered at her home, said Debra Navarro, a friend and business associate of many years.
Epstein, who had been retired for 10 years, operated a buying service out of her apartment for small boutiques, specialty stores and clients throughout the country. Epstein was involved in retail throughout her career. In the Seventies, she was a personal shopper at Bergdorf Goodman.
Epstein is survived by a sister, Cookie Arum, and several nieces and nephews.
