Not to brag or anything, but we totally predicted this move. The COS store that's headed to Fifth Avenue — replacing an H&M that shut down in June — isn't taking up the entire sale space that its cheaper sister brand had, so naturally it'll be joined by & Other Stories. The Shophound spotted the Swedish retailers' dual signage on the corner of 42nd Street this morning, as well as an opening date for Stories: October 30th.
The signs for COS just says "Opening Soon," but it's likely that we'll get both of them on the same day. Let's add it to the list of store openings we're looking forward to for the rest of the year.
