The latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up. NB, Racked's hosting a conversation at the 92YTribeca tonight at 7pm featuring the good folks from Gilt Groupe and Inven.tory. Do drop by.
1) Herald Square: Banner day in the shopping kingdom today, amigos. That's because Manhattan's first JC Penney is soft-opening in the Manhattan Mall. Racked's got a sneak photogallery preview of all the fun including a full-size Sephora.
2) Midtown: Gap is keeping things hopping on Fifth Avenue, converting the pop-up space next to its flagship store from an insta-yoga studio into a Product (Red) Gallery. Tourists rejoice!
