Filenes Basement's Last Days?
It looks like Filene's Basement is nearing its end. I went in last week when I had a few minutes before a doctor appointment at the Beth Israel Union Square Megaplex and found empty aisles. I intended to ask a salesperson about it, but it just seemed too depressing.
According to The Villager, a discount version of Nordstroms will open up in the Virgin Megastore space, and Best Buy will be replacing Circuit City. But no mention of Filenes Basement, which takes up 3 floors overlooking Union Square.
