Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Since launching Racked LA in April, my time as Editor has been a whirlwind—from relentless iPhone lines and H&M Comme des Garcons madness to the sad sounds of boutiques shuttering in tune with the ailing economy. A big thank you to Racked LA readers, commenters and those all important tipsters for making it so vibrant! Of course, Racked LA continues its forward march toward all things retail, but I will be bidding adieu and giving my blog, BLACKBURNANDSWEETZER.COM some much deserved attention. Moving forward, please direct all pitches, intel and sales related information to the editors at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for the memories!
