Are there any shops that you wish would open in your nearest town or city?

I would love these two to come to London:

United Arrows (from Japan)

Bruuns Bazaar (from Denmark)

Bruuns Bazaar is great!

Well, I don't know, maybe Colette just because the store is so cool. Also the store Storm in Copenhagen would be nice. However, there are sooo many I would like to have here in my town, haha.

I plan to come over to Copenhagen soon to get kitted out there.
I have a lovely cardigan from Bruuns Bazaar. This little taste leaves me wanting more!

I feel like Topshop is the only thing my city lacks that I could possibly afford... but Topshop is rather expensive compared to what I normally buy, haha.

And maybe some chain thrift stores closer to my house, the closest one is about 20 minutes away and no one will drive me there :/

Probably more chain thrift stores. I have plenty around me but, there just not up the par they should be at. And more Zara (For men)
around my area. There's very few.

Oh, sounds lovely - I'm going to Copenhagen in July, but it isn't that special when I live in Denmark! Can't you buy Bruuns Bazaar anywhere in London?

Probably not :/ there's not many I know of in the city, otherwise I'd go to them. Most of them are in random towns that I'd need to go on a highway for, but there's not a bus that could get me there easily.

I wouldn't mind Topshop or ASOS. I live right near the Mall of America which always tends to get those type of stores first. So hopefully something new will come in soon. A Hello Kitty store just opened. that was pretty exciting. (joke)

Topshop, Urban Outfitters, and a VERY organized Forever 21.
When I went to the states, Forever 21 was such a mess, it was worse than digging for treasure in a thrift store!

hmm. it seems like many people get nice things at zara. & topshop... and, the closest uo and h&m would be an hour away.
not very far, though it would be easier if there was one walking distance, as everything is in my town.

Sisley needs more love!
IDG how they are still in business.
I'm guessing they must be big in Europe as they are so hard to pin down in London.
UCoB own Sisley? (or is it the other way around?)

That's right.
However..... wouldn't it be great if they opened up a pop-up shop for a couple of weeks where you could just get the LCF's LTD 100 pieces?

Not easily...

ASOS have about 3 different cardigans (which is where I got mine).

I think it is stocked in Harvey Nichols (a high end department store), but I have never been down there to see what they have.

They also have a showroom in Mayfair, but that is for trade and store buyers only I think.

When I originally saw this advert in a magazine last year, it ignited my passion for this label! (I got a slightly darker grey version of this cardigan)

yeah, I avoid Forever 21 because it's impossible to shop through! Heritage 1981, also owned by F21, has the same type of stuff, but more organized (& better sales!).

The Swedes get it so right in retail.

I think the Japanese pip them to the post (only just).

Visvim/F.I.L. - a European flagship? (wishful thinking!)

BEAMS.

They really know how to execute sophisticated retail concepts over there....

I think Benetton owns Sisley, but I'd love to have either one of them in Canada :).
Sisley's men collection is to die for.

I wouldn't like to have Topshop in my town, because then everyyyone would be wearing it, and it would lose it's niceness. I have to travel about half an hour to an hour to get to the nearest one, and it suits me just fine.

I would love for a Gina Tricot store to come to my country, though.
