LES—Annie O., the deathly-hip boutique attached to THOR, has just launched an e-commerce site. From the press release that just landed in the Racked inbox: "The online selection includes one-of-a-kind Lucite cuffs from Piece Unique, Loraine cosmetics, the Edun organic clothing line and Loulou de la Falaise jewelry and home furnishings."

TRIBECA—Tribeca is apparently in dire need of another grocery store. Per a reader who commented on the Whole Foods post earlier: "Currently the only supermarket in the area is a Food Emporium. It's an one shithole of a place. Their produce is unbelievably expensive and of terrible quality. Last time I was in there, I witnessed a woman holding a tomato in the air at the check out counter screaming "EVERYONE THIS COST FOUR BUCKS" The Food Emporium, stinky badly run place that it is currently serves the population of the middle and low income towers above it. (not terribly white nor terribly rich). And you can bet they'll be shopping at the Wholefoods." [Racked Comments]
