And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) MePa: Alexander McQueen's MePa store has been doing so well with custom-made clothes that it's looking to lease another space. Thanks to those $30,000 dresses, it might even be another space in the neighborhood.
2) UWS: Another sign the recession is ending: interest in shaving products other than Gilette. The Art of Shaving has just signed an Upper West Side lease for its sixth store, and it's on the hunt for three more locations.
3) Chelsea: The madness that is the Barneys Warehouse Sale now has a start date: February 17. Racked has the full rundown on schedules and pricing. Start strategizing now.
