L’Occitane just opened a new store on 76th and Broadway. To celebrate this weekend they reminisced about the olden days — no, not the Upper West Side’s gritty days in the 80’s, but the olden days of Renaissance times: someone was playing a harp and the store was giving away champagne, Jen Maguire Coughlin said. As we wrote a few months ago, the store replaced The Body Shop, which had been on that corner for decades. L’Occitane is having a 15% off sale through Tuesday.
Fox’s designer off-price store opened over the weekend at 80th Street and Broadway in the old spot of Filene’s Basement/Syms. On November 23, Fox’s stores plan to hold holiday parties, although they don’t explain what that means.
Thanks to Jen and Angie for the tips and photos.
