Laytner's on Union Street Closing August 23

Laytner's Linen and Home, the sprawling outpost of the home goods chain located on Union Street neat Seventh Avenue, will be closing for good on August 28th. There's a currently a major sale going on — everything in the store is at least 20 percent off — and it's selling fast.

For those looking for a great deal, there are currently plenty to be had. Some sheets and bedding are 50 percent off, and furniture is also deeply discounted. This location opened in 2008, and is one of the only places in the area where staple home items like towels, shower curtains, kitchenware, and bedding could be found. Below is the note announcing their farewell.

They are closing on August 23rd. Was in yesterday... They still have a lot of inventory left for great prices.

never ever got an acknowledgement from the staff. Very poor customer service.

This store opened either in very early 2010 or late 2009. I wonder why they think they opened in 2008. It's not a big deal but an odd corporate mistake that seems indicative of the way they treated this particular outpost.

I always received great service here.

Loved that store. I thought it was some of the nicest (but not pushy) sales folks and they had a lot of things I otherwise had to go to Target (a special hell) or into the city for. They had terrible lighting, though. Sad to see it go.

VLM: Indeed, the world of blog archives confirms that Laytner's opened this location in late November 2009, just in time for the peak holiday shopping season. Maybe they began thinking about a location in Park Slope back in 2008, but it took over a year to secure a location and open. Not an egregious error, to be sure.

Did the conversion of the Union St garage to condo go through? I know there were some zoning issues, plus lots of community resistance. I haven't been in that area in a while. I wonder if that factored into the decision to close this place down.

I remember thinking at the time that there was no way this store would survive in the long run, given Bed Bath and Beyond has the same stuff at lower prices. People on this blog jumped against that idea saying it was a much better store/much better value. Guess. They. Were. Wrong.

I loved this store - saved me from going into the city or to Target - sorry to see it go. And the service was always great

The people who worked here were always very friendly.

Will really miss this store. Hate having to go into the city for a pillow or a blanket for a guest or a decent shower curtain.

Would be nice for another home store to consider opening in Park Slope.

@Never Satisfied: Not sure how much community opposition there was as few raised much of a peep. It's in progress now.

August 12, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterVLM

That area is so dead.

It's dead? It's next door to the Food Co-op which has over 18,000 members.

Union and 7th is one of the most heavily trafficked corners in the neighborhood. That's why all the real estate offices have set up shop on that corner.

@VLM thanks for the info. I thought there was some organized community opposition to the development, but I guess I was wrong. I thought they were rallying behind the loss of a parking garage, zoning issues, size of the development, overcrowding in schools, no traffic impact study, etc, etc.

August 13, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNever Satisfied

A traffic impact study?

To go from a parking garage and rental car business to a condo with a half dozen units?

Yea that's Park Slope for ya.

They started on the conversion months ago and it's already heavily in progress.

August 13, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterIna

Kinda sad that a non-boutique-y store can't really make it in Park Slope, but guess I'll survive. Where's the nearest store that sells comparable goods? No, not Target, please... I guess the Internet was bound to great a big hole in non-virtual retail...
