Just in time for Fashion Week, the Gap says it will open a pop-up store in partnership with Merci, a Paris boutique. Located on New York's Fifth Avenue, Merci Gap is slated to be open Sept. 10 through
Oct. 4, and will sell limited-edition jeans, trenchcoats, and t-shirts, lifestyle/home items, and Annick Goutal fragrances.
All profits from Merci Gap, the company says, "will go to various
children's charities and to provide work for impoverished youth in Madagascar, as with the original store in Paris." This is Merci's first foray into the U.S.--Sarah Mahoney
