A Rack Rumour


With Virgin Mega store gone from Union Square, a lil fairy told me that come Spring '10, mega retailer chain Nordstrom will replace the musical Mecca with it's discount offshoot Nordstrom Rack. OOOh I can just smell the discounts coming giving Filene's and Loehmann's a run for it's money! Rack should be an amazing discount shopping destination. Although NYC is known as the best US City to shop in, sometimes I feel the Big Apple is treated like a bastard step child by many retailers. TopShop, Wal-Mart JC Penney and Forever 21 are all large retailers that for years ignored NYC. I choose to believe that with high as hell real estate prices, small space and pretty dense competition for fickle shopper dollars, many retailers choose to garner sales in larger US Cities that are more friendly. Well readers while we hold our breath for the grand opening, (I see myself camping out the night before) head over to the Nordstrom site for their amazing and orgasmic Anniversary sale. If you get the chance tell me what retailer you would love to see come to NYC.


Ciao!
