Though the official response from a J. Crew rep was "we do not have any confirmations on NYC stores at this point," a source close to Racked informs us that the company is thisclose to signing a lease for a space for their concept store Madewell in Soho on the corner that previously housed cowboy clothing shop Western Spirit (486 Broadway). Of course, all is tentative at this point, but you may recall that the last time we checked in with the company, they were hoping to open a Madewell store here by fall. Stay tuned...
