A Trio of Closings

"I have wonderful landlords. You hear about all these landlords raising rent. They have been the fairest people in the world. Can you put in a word for them? Peter and Olga Bilakos."

In late February, Diana Slaughter emailed asking if Naked Furniture had closed. She was waiting for $500 worth of prepaid merchandise and said that when she tried to call, "the phone rings, and the voice mailbox is full." Only last year, Naked Furniture moved a block east on Washtenaw and laid out its grand plan to move upmarket as well as up the street. Instead of unfinished pine furniture, the store's owner, Ron LaFleur, was emphasizing custom-finished hardwood.

Thanks to Slaughter's tip, we caught what seemed to be the end of a closeout sale, with large banners screaming: "Hurry. Time is short. All must go." But though the lights were on, the store's door was locked, and its website had been taken offline.
