Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The latest retail victim of creepy crawly bloodsuckers? Victoria's Secret on 58th Street and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. Our sister site Racked NY reports that the upper east side store had a mild case of bedbuggage but has since both treated the store and removed and destroyed all infected merchandise (we're not sure what Hollister or Abercrombie & Fitch did, but they didn't say anything about destroying their infested merchandise, something we're pretty sure is key). "All of this went down on Wednesday, and the store has re-opened. To ensure that this doesn't have to happen again, Victoria's Secret will test for bedbugs in all of their other NYC stores and possibly even some in the suburbs. Perhaps A&F should be taking notes."
