British fashion chain Topshop is coming to Los Angeles in February 2013. The new store will be located in The Grove and will take over the current Banana Republic store location.
One of the most popular fashion chains in Britain, Topshop, is spreading its wings and flying over to Los Angeles – and The Grove in particular. Though the official opening date is sometime in February 2013, Rick Caruso (who developed the Grove) has said that he is hoping to open it earlier, perhaps even by November 2012.
“We’ve spent a lot of time literally going around the world identifying great retailers and great restaurateurs,” Caruso said. “You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that Topshop is one of them.”
If the store opens earlier than expected, Caruso says it would be perfect for holiday shopping.
The store will be 25,000 square feet and will be Topshop’s first West Coast location. There are only three other Topshops in the United States, including one in New York City, Chicago and Las Vegas, which will open next month.
Banana Republic will be relocated to a smaller space in The Grove and Topshop will be primly located near Forever 21 and Zara – two other global chains that are quickly spreading to similar markets.
