FILLING THE SHELVES:
Chelsea's Anthropologie Gets Stocked
April 5, 2010
Don't get too excited. Notices on the doors tell us we will have to wait until April 16th to actually go inside the place, but the windows on 15th Street are already dressed, and the place is full of goods. From what we can tell, there may well be a much heavier emphasis on home furnishings in this store, which is smart, because the chain's lower Fifth Avenue store is not really that far away, and there are plenty of clothes there. Home furnishings makes more sense for the location, whose only other apparel comes from 202 Nicole Farhi across the aisle (if you don't count the rotating sample sales inside the arcade).
What we don't yet know is if there will be more selling space hidden downstairs, because, otherwise, that big staircase in the center of the store would be an awfully eye-catching route to a lowly stockroom.
