HERALD SQUARE—That upcoming Crocs store we heard about nearly a year ago—the one that's responsible for the demise of the local Pizza Hut, Tad's Broiled Steaks, and Tim Horton's—is starting to take shape. There's now a huge construction façade on corner of 34th Street and Seventh Avenue, across from Macy's and next to H&M. Looks like they're slated to open this winter. [RackedWire]
MIDTOWN—All month long, get a free Express Rose Facial Treatment (worth $50) when you purchase a B Moisturizing Rose Day Cream (also $50) from B London's new skincare line at Henri Bendel. Both the facial and the day cream are ultra-moisturizing and suitable for all skin types. [RackedWire]
UNION SQUARE—Update your trendy basics at Forever 21's Summer Hotspot Event. The party will include refreshments, a braid bar, an in-store DJ, personal styling consultations—and, of course, free stuff. It all kicks off at noon on Saturday, and we're guessing it'll be just as crowded as this. [RackedWire]
