If you were looking forward to getting more for your dollar at TopShop in SoHo this fall, you are just going to have to wait it out at H&M. The British retailer announced that the NYC Flagship and first US TopShop location will not open until next March. Construction delays are the delinquent, not the economy, according to TopShop’s CEO.
Sir Philip Green said, "This has been a logistical nightmare. America is a new territory for us and we have to
get it exactly right. This store can’t be a nine out of 10 when it
opens; it has to be a 10 out of 10. So we’re delaying the opening until
around mid-March. It has nothing to do with what’s going on
with the economy. This is totally to do with the
complexity of this project. It’s basically a rebuild of an entire
building and we want to make sure we do it right." We’re at least glad to know that the new store will be absolutely perfect when it opens, right? Yeah… no. We’d rather it open now and shop next to guys putting up drywall. Oh well.
