BEVERLY GROVE/SANTA MONICA: The worldwide rights of iconic LA retailer Fred Segal have been sold to an NYC-based company named Sandow Media. Sandow plans to open Fred Segal stores in New York, London, Paris, Milan, Tokyo and Shanghai and has Fred Segal-branded merchandise in the works. The stores on Melrose Ave. and in Santa Monica will not be affected by the sale.
BEVERLY GROVE: The CityTarget going in on the top floor of the Beverly Connection has a tentative opening date: March 2013. The store will take up 99,000 square feet. Target has similar urban concepts planned for Downtown LA and Westwood, both of which will open this year.
CALABASAS: The Kardashians are relocating their Dash boutique from Calabasas to West Hollywood and are in the midst of a big moving sale. A Racked reconnaissance mission reveals that pretty much the entire store (save for some Kardashian-branded candles) is marked down 25 to 75%. The sale will be on until the Kardashians' lease is up at the end of May.
