TopShop Coming to The Grove
Anglophiles, ready your wallets: British clothing store TopShop is coming to The Grove.
The Huffington Post reports that the store is set to make its appearance in February of 2013, and that TopShop will take the place of the existing Banana Republic, which will move to a smaller space in the mall. Rick Caruso, the developer behind The Grove, said that he'd like to push the open date up to November, in time for the holidays, if possible.
For those who have never heard of the fashion retailer, TopShop is a lot like H&M -- affordable, fashion-forward clothes that are perhaps not the most durable, but will probably last the length of the trend.
There are no other TopShops in L.A., and only three others in the country, in New York, Chicago and Las Vegas.
