Byline: Kerry Diamond
NEW YORK — Beauty.com will close its New York office by the end of the year and run the operation out of the Seattle offices of its parent, Drugstore.com, WWD has learned.
As reported, Drugstore.com is in the process of laying off 10 percent of its personnel, which includes all Beauty.com departments except for customer care. The fate of Makeupalley.com, the popular beauty bulletin board and swap site that Beauty.com bought last year, remains unknown.
“We will look at them as part of the transition plans,” said a Drugstore spokeswoman.
