Aeropostale opened its second location in under a month this weekend, debuting a big teen-friendly store on Brooklyn's Fulton Mall. The shop is the second-largest of the chain's NYC stores after the new Times Square location, and according to Brownstoner it was packed this weekend.
This isn't the first national chain for Fulton Mall, but it is the first step in a series of changes that will make the area feel a lot more like Manhattan than its current incarnation. A Shake Shack is due next spring, the hybrid Filene's-Syms shop FbSY is supposed to open next year, and while details are scanty, the delayed H&M ought to go live at some point in the near future.
