Rackage is a look inside recently-opened stores around town. Today, we journey to Soho to peer inside Space.NK's shiny new product palace.

For those who love a good exfoliating scrub or are entranced by the myriad Essie hues on the shelves of their local Duane Reade, the stateside arrival of British apothecary Space.NK is a very, very good thing. The 2,000-square-foot store, the company's US flagship, is stocked with a plethora of high-end skincare, makeup, hair care, fragrance and body care products. We don't have the space to list them all, but here's a few to whet your appetite: Dr Hauschka, Laura Mercier, Nars, Lipstick Queen and Peter Thomas Roth, as well as the company's own brand. Space.NK is planning on opening three more NYC stores, which has got to suck a big one for competitor Sephora. Well, may the best product shop win. If you'd like to read more about the store, the Sun printed a nice piece a few weeks back.
