Buried deep in a report on US private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.'s purchase of a majority stake in cool French brands Sandro and Maje is official word that LA will be getting its very own Maje boutique (as well as a Sandro store, as was already foretold).
According to the report, KKR&Co has a very aggressive growth strategy and plans to open Maje boutiques in LA, Vegas, San Fran, Houston and Bal Harbour, Florida by the end of 2013. Real estate agents, start your bidding.
