Bed Bugs attack Nike flagship store as exterminators work around-the-clock to battle the insects.

Nike joins the ranks those bed critters known as bugs that have hit Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, Victoria's Secret, Google, AMC Empire 25, the Manhattan DA's office and the Roosevelt Houses. In fact, former President Bill Clinton's office had to be shut down for several days.

Nike's flagship store Niketown has been "proactively closed" after the bugs were discovered.

"Our primary concern is the well being of our consumers and sales associates. We are taking all proper steps to eradicate the problem and we expect the store to reopen shortly," Nike said in a statement,

A witness said that there were four Terminix trucks parked at the location since Friday. It must be a big problem if Terminix is still working on it. But we do know that it's been a very profitable year for the exterminator.
