And now, the latest from Racked, covering retail and shopping from the sidewalks up.
1) Soho: Bad news for those awaiting the Crate & Barrel offshoot CB2 in Soho: the opening of the Broadway outpost is delayed per the emails going out. Racked reports a likely new opening date of November 6.
2) Soho: There are serious words of wisdom from Kenneth Cole on a new humongous billboard on Houston Street. Per Racked: “We need more than a surface mentality. The writing is on the wall.” Indeed.
3) Flatiron: The Bombay Company is going out of business, so this means available retail space and a blowout going-out-of-business sale at some point.
4) Everywhere: In the big bucks world of fake vampire teeth and slutty bar wench outfits, Ricky's has sixteen pop-up stores this season, but the key to Halloween costume success is irony.
