EMS closed its last NYC store, in Soho, last year. There are still locations on Long Island and nationwide, and you can shop up to 70% off online.
Get great deals on outdoor clothing and sports gear from Paragon Sports, the NYC-based clothing and gear retailer in Flatiron. Deals are both in-store and online.
There also are seasonal sales at Patagonia, at their stores in Soho, Meatpacking and the Upper West Side, and online.

Sports Authority is gone, following a lengthy going out of business sale. Aeropostale and American Apparel are closing stores in an effort to survive.
