It's time for the third annual Racked Awards: our celebration of the best and brightest in fashion and retail. On Thursday, October 10th, we'll be honoring the winners of a handful of categories at a gala celebration, including New York City's hottest store of the year, coolest pop-up shop, most epic sample sale, cutest store sidekick, and more.
Several of these categories are open to a reader vote, and we're launching the first poll today. After the jump, cast your vote for the city's Best New Store. The contenders are American Two Shot in Soho, Personnel of New York in the West Village, Swords-Smith in Williamsburg, Dagny + Barstow in Nolita, and the new Kirna Zabete that's relocated to Broome Street.
Update: We have a winner! Personnel of New York.
