First the BNKR store was going to open last summer. Then it was to be at the end of last year. Then it was to be at the beginning of this year.
Now the latest news is that the Australian-brand store opens its doors at the corner of Ninth Street and Broadway in downtown Los Angeles sometime in April, said Kendall Sargeant, the pr person for parent company Australian Fashion Labels.
Since the beginning of this year, black paper has shrouded the tall windows of the store, located a few doors up from the Ace Hotel and across the street from Acne Studios. The company is already advertising job opening at the downtown outpost.
BNKR, whose parent company is Australian Fashion Labels, was started in 2007 in Adelaide, Australia, by Dean and Melanie Flintoft. The retailer is best known for its fast fashions that are trendy contemporary labels sold at fairly reasonable prices.
It has only one other store outside of the United States. That is in Adelaide. Australia.
