Today is just full of news about former Virgin Megastores. This morning, we learned that the Virgin Times Square will become a Disney store; now, we've got an update on the fate of its downtown sister, which has been fairly quiet ever since Nordstrom Rack announced its intentions to move in. The dirt, as pointed out by the Shophound: People, we have new signage. And that signage includes a launch date. Nordstrom Rack will throw open its doors to the shoppers of Union Square on May 11, 2010. Only 126 days to go!
