Not to be outdone by Amazon's announcement back in February that they will be opening their first brick-and-mortar store in Seattle, Gap Inc.-owned Piperlime has declared that they, too, are opening a real live store. A spokesperson told WWD:
The store will have a women’s focus. We will have clothing and we’ll be showing our disproportionate love of shoes and accessories. There will be a mix of discovery and established brands across all categories.”
And actually, Piperlime is beating Amazon to the punch. While Amazon is still reportedly looking for a location, Piperlime has already found theirs: a 4,000-square-foot spot at 121 Wooster Street.
