The Gilt City Warehouse sale was cancelled last night. Apparently it was shut down by police right before those with 9:30 tickets could enter and, according to an anonymous tipster, there were about 200 people in line. A source tells us that it was a venue issue "outside of the Gilt's control." It won't be reopening today.
But there is a silver lining. Gilt is refunding each ticket and providing customers with an additional $25 credit to their accounts.
