CANCELLED - Mike & Chris Sample Sale

In an completely unprecedented move, the California based brand Mike & Chris have cancelled their New York Sample Sale that was scheduled to begin yesterday without warning. Shoppers who hiked all the way to 10th Avenue with the promise of 75% off on fleeces, bags, and leather goods were sorely disappointed and left with only the above sign instead.

The cancellation led to speculation that Mike & Chris was going under, with rumors of unstability and unpaid staff.

A Mike & Chris rep released the below statement:

"Mike & Chris is very much still in business, now and moving forward. The sample sale was canceled due to a very unfortunate error in shipping and will be rescheduled within the next 4-6 weeks. They are incredibly sorry about any inconveniences by those who went to the sale."

I'm not sure what shipping error could cause a sample sale to be delayed 4-6 weeks, unless they are planning on transporting good cross-country on bicycle? In all my sample sale experience, a cancelled sale? This is a first!
