Caban announced recently that it would be closing its doors, and have now begun huge clearance sales at all of their Canadian stores. Though I was hoping to one day toast a US expansion - instead it's time to say goodbye to the 6-year-old franchise.
Shoppers are scooping up sales already, and though the sale is good, it's not "closing sale good". Caban's got some quality brands and that seems to be enough to get shoppers in for the bargains. In the food section you'll find 20% off deals on products by Dean and Deluca, Bodum, Stelton and Nigella Lawson. You can pick up books, like Susur Lee's A Culinary Life, for 30%, and if you're looking for big ticket furniture items which are 20% off you're going to have to get there fast before there's a sold sign on that Philippe Stark stool you wanted.
I'll have to mourn the slick lifestyle brand's demise in true Caban fashion, with a spill of bubbly on the hardwood floor (bought new champagne glasses) while I throw on a Buddha Bar CD and whip something up from Balthazar's cookbook.
