Unfortunately, if you’ve enjoyed shopping at Treasure & Bond, the SoHo store whose profits all went to charity, you won’t be able to do so any longer. They recently closed the store at 350 W. Broadway between Grand and Broome streets. The commendable goal of the store was to donate 100% of the profits to charity to benefit kids in NYC. The store first opened in August of 2011 and pledged to donate to locations like The Edible Schoolyard NYC and the Association to Benefit Children.
As the Nordstrom spokeswoman explained, “Treasure & Bond was always meant to be an experiment where we could try something new to give back to the NYC community. We’re really proud of our efforts, but after two years we had yet to turn a profit.” Over their two year run, they did raise $200,000 for charities.
