SOHO—Ski and snowboarding gear master Burton is moving out of 106 Spring Street, and you know what that means: a sale is in order. Select items are now 50% off, and come April 11th, discounts will be bumped up to 75% off through the rest of the month. A new store will open on Greene Street in the fall.

NEW YORK CITY—New York Sports Club's parent company, which also owns BFX Studio, is preparing to roll out "shop-in-shop" concepts with cycling studio Cyc and the high-intensity Tone House, Well + Good reports. Major changes include these classes being offered in Chelsea, a downtown Tone House studio within a Soho or Tribeca NYSC, and BFX Fidi converting into a special NYSC that'll test new class programming.

WILLIAMSBURG—Based on this job listing posted on Fashionista, a new fine jewelry store is headed to Brooklyn. The soon-to-launch Quiet Storms (it's so new that it doesn't have a website yet) will feature up-and-coming accessory designers.

WILLIAMSBURG—The Glossier girl gang will recognize a certain font taking over a subway in the neighborhood, as Jennifer Harris pointed out on Instagram. Don't be surprised if the brand goes for Thinx-like domination in stations across the city.
