Bedbugs discovered Victoria's Secret

NEW YORK, July 17 (UPI) -- The Victoria's Secret store in Manhattan's Lenox Hill neighborhood was shut down for several hours this week after bed bugs were discovered in "isolated areas."

"When we found small, isolated areas that may have been impacted, we immediately took action to resolve the situation," the store's parent company, Limited Brands, said in a statement Friday.

Limited temporarily closed the Upper East Side location after testing all of its Manhattan stores, The New York Daily News reported Saturday.

Bedbug outbreaks were reported earlier this month at a Hollister's store in SoHo and Abercrombie & Fitch's South Street Seaport location, the News said.
