Official "Coming Soon Winter 2007" signage has also been put up in the Laytner's window. Actually, it's more than 'coming soon' signage - it's a window-filled introduction to the Forest Hills store. It obviously shows work. Compare that, to, say, First Central Savings which reused an old 'coming soon to your neighborhood' piece of cardboard. It makes a difference.
To me, this is as much of a boost as TJ's. To go from 'Savvy' to Laytner's which is opening its first outer borough store is a big deal - and something we've all been asking for. And it has seemed to temporarily shut up the defeatist anonymous commenters whose best response to this has been "It's no Williams Sonoma". Well, it's no Savvy either.
A few doors down from Natural/Nick's/Q Bistro/Bonelle, this is the perfect location for something like this. I think it's going to do great business and attract other retailers like it. Good luck Laytner's and TJ's. Welcome to the new Forest Hills.
