Sponsored Post: *We think* it’s finally time to say buh-bye to that winter coat. Gather your furs: be it vests, jackets or coats and hustle them over to Closter Furs so they can be protected, cleaned and stored in a temperature and humidity controlled Cold Storage Vault- we doubt you’ll miss them. ($10 off! 570 Piermont Rd. Closter, 201-767-0448)
