Planning to pop into the Tory Burch sample sale today? You're not the only one—Racked NY editor Laura Gurfein is on on the scene this morning and says there's at least 65 people waiting to get into Metropolitan Pavilion. After just a few minutes, there were already three more shoppers after her, so "I'm expecting this line to keep growing, and will likely institute a one-in one-out policy with bag check." One big bonus: At least there's shade.
9:18am: "There's at least a dozen people in front of me and at least 25 behind."
9:31am: "I'm still not in, and now people are crying foul about a line cutter. Sigh."
