WEST VILLAGE—Our new favorite store to hate on Bleecker Street is opening any day now according to a reader, who writes: "It looks like Sunglass Hut is set to open soon on Bleeker St and West 10th and I doubt highly it's a 'concept store'." Ralph can't be pleased about this one! [RackedWire Inbox]
MIDTOWN EAST—Has anyone had time to stop by the Diane von Furstenberg sample sale? A reader writes: "Any word on whether it’s worth going to? I went to the last one and remember that the prices weren’t that great but the line to check out was over an hour wait?am debating going this time around." If you've been, feel free to send in a report. [RackedWire Inbox]
