Two former "Shops" brands expand their retail space...

The Webster Miami and Kirna Zabête - who both participated in last year's "The Shops" concept at Target - have both announced expansions to their retail empires this week. Racked.com reports that The Webster will open a second store at at 29 Greene Street in NYC. The 4,000 square feet space - which isn't bad by New York standards - is significantly smaller than the 20,000 square foot space The Webster occupies in Miami. 

Meanwhile, luxe boutique Kirna Zabête is getting an upgrade. Last Fall they announced that they had outgrown their old Soho space at 96 Greene, which Rebecca Minkoff will move into. Kirna's owners Sarah Easley and Beth Buccini have now confirmed that their new home at 477 Broome Street will open in May.

interesting, I thought the curiosity shop was really cute(and you mentioned it was closing) and most people were not happy with the Kirna Zabête collection not to say her upscale collection is the same quality, etc.

Floating: yeah, it's odd that Target seems to have given Kirna a "boost", even though their line had plenty of leftovers in store and on Target.com.

I also think it's a gamble for The Webster to venture into NYC. Their stuff seems awfully similar to Calypso St. Barth (another past Target collab) and Calypso already has a foothold in NYC.

Hi there! great stuff, glad to drop by your page and found these very interesting and informative. Thanks for sharing, keep it up!
Having the right representation can mean the difference between favorable lease arrangements and a costly business proposition. Professional representation is always a good idea just about any time you’re in the market for office, retail or industrial space, such as:
Bringing a new business on-line; Expanding the footprint of your current business operation; Moving your business to/from New Hampshire; Sub leasing extra property or space to generate revenue
