The Balenciaga Mercer Street saga continues, but this time with better news. The location at 148 Mercer Street is apparently set to open in a few weeks, and now, WWD reports that it will be joined by a men's store across the street at 149 Mercer.
If that address sounds familiar—and it should, as we've been writing about it for well over a year—that's the former spot of the upcoming Saint Laurent store, which recently decided it would open at 80 Greene Street instead. According to the Times, that store should be opening sometime this month.
