And now, the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Midtown East: Manhattan's first Nordstrom Rack is not yet open, but there are already rumors that the company might be renting out 521 Fifth Avenue at 43rd Street, a former Circuit City space, for a second location. The company says it's nowhere near signing a lease. Has excitement about one Nordstrom Rack opening led to premature rumors of another?
2) Soho: A kid armed with a can of hot pink spray paint went wild on Spring Street, even tagging the front of the Chanel store. But rest easy: the offender has been caught.
