1) C. Ronson: Designer Charlotte Ronson's Nolita boutique has reopened after being closed for renovations. The shop is still stocked with Ronson's girly, 70's-inspired creations and wedge heels; we don't know what part of the store needed to be renovated, but maybe they slapped a fresh coat of paint on the place or something. 239 Mulberry St between Prince and Spring Sts; (212) 625-9074 [WWD, subscription req]
1) Club Monaco, Papyrus: A tipster notifies us of two new stores uptown. On Columbus Avenue between 69th and 71st Street, we have a "new Club Monaco where Banana Republic used to be" and a "new Papyrus where a deli used to be." Said tipster also had some queries about the neighborhood: "the entire block on East side between Fish & Eddies and Cosi? All stores are vacant and nothing posted as to what's happening there? Tower Records still vacant...is it going to be a TJ Maxx? What else is going in at 15 CPW besides Best Buy?" Anyone have an answer or two for the man? [Racked Inbox]
