Two interesting takeaways from Steven Alan's chat with Women's Wear Daily today: 1) He's probably never going to open in midtown. "We're really a neighborhood store, like on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn," he says. "I can't imagine us ever being on Fifth Avenue or 57th Street." 2) He's thinking about launching a home decor store in Tribeca. "We have an office space on Franklin Street [in New York] that we're moving out of in July, so we're considering doing home there. It would be a mixture of vintage and new products, and eventually we'd also make our own things." [WWD]
