And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Upper East Side: Fairway will officially break ground tomorrow, but construction's already underway, and Fairway higher-ups are promising "a more complete shopping experience" than at the UWS store. Gauntlet: thrown!
2) Park Slope: The retail space between Fifth Avenue and Flatbush on Bergen Street is quickly filling up. The latest store is Level 2, which is aimed at tweens but might be hip enough to attract slightly older folks, Racked notes. Does that make it the Twilight of womenswear?
3) Tribeca: Kim and Kourtney Kardashians will be relocating to the penthouse of the Smyth Hotel to film a three-month-long E! show, with a MePa store possibly in the works.
