This happens all the time, which only goes to prove that nobody should ever put a sign on their upcoming store that says anything other than "Opening Soon". We are sure that Patagonia had every intention of getting its Meatpacking District store on 14th Street open by this year's Holiday Season, but delays will happen. Now the brand has exactly 16 days to meet its projected date before it is Winter and they are officially late. Stranger things have been known to happen, but we won't hold our breath, and you shouldn't either. We are guessing the store should be ready early next year, but who knows? Given the event of recent months, construction crews are in particularly high demand these days. Luckily, the brand remains ever-popular, and most of its fans will take it whenever they manage to get up and running. But next time, seriously, just say "Coming Soon".
