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.
Not to get sappy, but you guys know you're the lifeblog of the site, right? We couldn't possibly report on all LA's sales and retail news without your tips, and we love you for sending them in. If your tipping skills have gotten rusty, or if you've never done it before, here's a refresher course: Snap a photo with your phone or write up a quick email with whatever news you have to share (sale reviews, evidence of incoming pop-up shops, awesome window displays, incidences of serious retail injustice, cute store dogs) and send it to email@example.com. We'll never judge you, even if you're emailing us from inside a Forever 21 dressing room; we'll keep your identity strictly anonymous; and we'll be very, very grateful. [RackedWire]
