And now, the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Lower East Side: Rivington Street icon Economy Candy was closed for a few days to replace the floors. They were pretty darn adorable about it.
2) Noho: Maybe he's tired of the backlash? Calvin Klein's newest Houston Street billboard drops the sex in favor of a random pattern of red dots. Oh, that can be unlocked by smartphones to reveal a video clip of models frolicking? That sounds more like it!
3) Midtown: Has the Bedbugs scandal hurt business at Abercrombie & Fitch at all? It's safe to say it hasn't, bros.
