We guess opening a five story, 55,000 square foot, multi-sport megaplex isn't all that easy... obviously. Especially, with the good brothers and sisters at Nike postponing the grand opening that was supposed to take place yesterday. For those of you that were provided wristbands for the opening of the store, Nike will honor them and provide a new opening date hopefully in the near future. Nike expects nothing but perfection from their new location and we can't blame them. With that being said, Nike has issued an official statement explaining their delay of the SoHo location, take a look for yourself below:
"We look forward to bringing New Yorkers the best of Nike at our new Soho store. Due to permitting issues, the store will not open to the general public as planned on Friday, November 11th. We will communicate the new opening date as soon as possible. Scheduled product launches and consumer events are postponed until opening.
Any consumers who were issued wristbands outside the store prior to 9 pm on Thursday, November 10th will still be guaranteed their place in line for styles that were scheduled to drop on Friday, November 11th. In order to guarantee this access, these consumers need to come to the store by 6 pm on Friday, November 11th with their wristbands to be informed of next steps and offered a sign of our appreciation. No additional wristbands will be issued. We will provide the new launch date soon."
As soon as the Swoosh provides us with a new release date, we'll have an update for you guys.
