Harvey Electronics Closes New York Flagship
The venerable East Coast electronics chain Harvey Electronics saw the close of an era last week, when it announced the closure of its flagship location on W. 45th Street in Manhattan. According to Information Week, the store will shut its doors Jan. 31, after 40 years.
Harvey maintains a Manhattan location on 19th Street and Broadway, and also owns a Bang & Olufsen Store two blocks away, on 21st Street. The chain also operates stores in Connecticut, Long Island and New Jersey.
The company has suffered of late, as a proposed merger with MyerEmco fell apart, leading it to file for Chapter 11 in December. Harvey said at the time that they will continue to operate and hope to emerge from bankruptcy in the spring.
