Jean-Phillipe Defaut for The New York Times
The proposed New York store would be 60,000 to 90,000 square feet, Mr. Green told reporters in April, a fashion outpost on a scale unmatched in any American city by any specialty clothing store.
Topshop’s entering New York “will be a very big deal,” Mr. Davidowitz, the retail consultant, predicted. “This would really be a powerhouse that would impact every fashion retailer in New York.”
Topshop’s rivals say that they can hold their own against its expansion. “Our philosophy has always been to have fashion and quality and the best price,” said Sanna Lindberg, the president of American operations for H&M. “I think we will continue to be popular even if Topshop shows up. They would just be another player.”
OH!!! I can’t wait!! H&M will have their biggest competitor once Topshop opens! I’ve always liked Topshop but never was able to get any products unless my friends go to London, now it will soon be accessible! I’m so greatful!
