Meg Archive Store (FORMER EAST VILLAGE FLAGSHIP)
With a heavy heart we are sad to say that this location is permanently closed as of October 15th, 2022. Although this is an end of an era, we would like to acknowledge the many amazing moments and achievements that have come out of being in this location for almost three decades.
First we would like to acknowledge the incredible success of our buyback program. Thanks to our incredible customers, reselling donated clothes at the Archive shop and online has helped us raise $12,000 for Planned Parenthood in the first half of 2022!
Secondly, we need to acknowledge the amazing 28 years we had in the East Village! So many friends and so many stories. My entire adult life is behind those walls. Every friend I have met is because of that space. My husband and I lived in the basement at one point, along with my best friends, my two cats, and occasionally my brother.
Every square inch of that space has memories attached to it and it has been hard to let it go. But over the years, I have learned that it isn't the location that matters. The people that I continue to share the love of fashion with is what makes this tiny brand be vibrant and grow with each collection.
If you have fond memories of your time in the East Village with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear about them and share them on this page! Our commitment to sustainability and our resale program continues through our Archive page, where you can shop old items and request to donate your own. If you have any questions about this process, email us at email@example.com.
Lots of love,
EAST VILLAGE MEMORIES
One time in 2005, I was trying on this fantastic navy blue suit. Pants with inverted pleats, 3/4 sleeve jacket. After tailoring, I hear a familiar voice in the other fitting room. "This is so great! I love this suit!" she said. When she popped out - in the same blue suit that I had on - I realized it was my co-worker. Of course we both had to have the suit and would coordinate when to wear it! Thank you, Meg!
Wow. My early 20s discovering fashion and style in NYC started in the East Village and a big part of it was at Meg. I wish I still owned some of those pieces! The orange cat! End of an era, but looking forward to what’s next in Brooklyn.
The East Village store gave me all the clothes I felt great in, even in times when I didn't feel great about myself. The store was always a colorful, happy place and an oasis. I first started visiting the shop around 2000 when I was sixteen, and I still love all of the lovely bright red dresses and fabulous sweaters and blazers that I wore, and some of which I still wear, even after 20 years!
