HELL'S KITCHEN & BEYOND—With their Ninth Avenue store now a month old, American Apparel is looking to expand further north and west. Via the company's website, we've discovered that Dov and his merry batch of headband-wearing associates are planning to open stores in Harlem (250 W 125th St between Seventh and Eighth Aves) and on the UWS (2103 Broadway at 73rd St). And of course there's also the pending F.I.T. location at 347 Seventh Ave. Give in, they've won. [RackedWire]
TRIBECA—It's almost time for Tribeca Whole Foods' opening-day extravaganza. A tipster writes, "At yesterdays green fair in Battery Park Whole Foods were handing out leaflets announcing that they would be opening on Wednesday, July 9th at 8am. Opening hours will be 8am to 10pm, 7 days per week." Whee. [RackedWire Inbox]
