It seems this may have been brewing for awhile now. Stila has went down hill since it was sold by Estee Lauder to Sun Capital Partners in 2006, the products got cut down to only being available at Ulta, Bloomingdale’s, and Sephora.
According to Fashionista.com employees were given little notice, arriving to offices that were shut down yesterday morning.
Fashionista goes on to say that their several attempts to contact Stila via e-mail and phone calls went unanswered.
Another kicker is that Stila's website has been down for around a week now. It states that it's just routine maintenance, but adds that orders placed between March 23 and March 24 may be canceled. Why cancel orders if it's only routine maintenance?
I feel for the people who truely loved Stila, but I'm not one of them. I do have to admit thoughts of mass amounts at discount retailers like Marshalls and TJMaxx does get my heart a beating.
