The past few days have been chock full of Storecasting. We promised you more dispatches on shops slated to open all over town, so here, five more stores on the horizon.
1) Sterling Place: This home furnishings store, or gift center, as we like to refer to it (because the place never has anything truly practical but does carry a ton of aesthetically-pleasing touches) is expanding. Sterling Place currently resides smack-dab in the center of a stretch of furniture and housewares shops on Atlantic Avenue, and now, via The Gowanus Lounge, we learn that the retailer is opening an outpost in Park Slope on Seventh Avenue and Tenth Street. Expect the same precious offerings. [The Gowanus Lounge]
3) Still Hip: Kid's, maternity clothing and toy resale boutique Still Hip was born as a invite-only stoop sale of sorts. Now the idea has a home: the two female founders, both mothers, have signed a lease at 283 Grand Avenue in Clinton Hill. [Racked Inbox, Brownstoner]
4) Doggy Day Care: A yet-as-unnamed doggy day care center will be opening in Dumbo at 20 Jay Street. We have no other information on this spot, but given the neighborhood, we're sure it'll be well received. [Dumbo NYC]
5) Adampluseve: More Meatpacking news: sportswear and undies shop Adampluseve is coming to a space at 678 Hudson Street. It'll be the company's first Manhattan store, with more to follow. [The Shophound]
