Stock up on your favorite Prescriptives products (and custom made lip glosses– oh my god I have to go get at least 10 tubes made!) before it gets completely shut down in January of 2010. After 30 years, Estee Lauder has decided to shutter all retail distribution of Prescriptives next year. WWD reported a speculation amongst insiders that a brand without a volume of at least $160 million at retail, a multinational distribution and a strong presence in the travel retail market will find it very difficult to be profitable in the current financial climate.
This is very sad news indeed. Make sure you stock up by January….. its website will continue until it sells out of the very last bit of inventory. Shop Prescriptives here.
