Here's what made me jump up and down and yell in my office last week because, well, I'm a little excitable:
"This is going to be Topshop in all its glory...It's not going to be Americanized. It will be London transferred to New York," said Sir Phillip Green, the retailer's owner....Green arrived in town this week for some advance publicity, and to prowl for other Manhattan sites. On his radar - 34th Street, and ________ and _______ Avenue in the _______. He said he's not close to securing a second site, but things could change during this visit. "I've got 10 sites to look at in three days. If the right deal comes up, I would do it," Green said. "If I find three, I will open three."

Obviously ______ & _______is not a direct quote. But in order to keep the good Topshop karma coming 34th Street way, I cannot mention any other part of town in conjunction with the T word (karmic law). Not that I wouldn't love to see Topshops all over NYC, I'm just putting my psychic effort behind the ONE street (Topshop 34th Street, Topshop 34th Street). If I could, this post would be like a psychedelic record from the 60's and have subliminal messages. Play it backwards and it would say "Topshop, 34th Street" over and over in a scary voice.
So let's start the universal cosmic chant that Sir Philip Green and associated real estate bigwigs will be unable to resist: "Topshop 34th Street, Topshop 34th Street." Oh, I'm so overcaffeinated this morning.
Who shall be our chant leader? Of course, SwamiLeon!
