The Aussies clearly know how to build anticipation. Just when we thought Australian retailer BNKR (pronounced "Bunker") was bluffing us, we now have their word that its first Stateside outpost in DTLA may finally be opening this month.
After telling Apparel News back in February that its 6,800-square-foot flagship at 9th and Broadway would open "sometime in April," the cult-favorite collective made it Insta-official with this job posting confirming a "mid-April" opening.
The Oz-based retailer first teased LA with a pop-up shop last summer before announcing that its much-delayed store would finally open at the end of 2015. Once open, the massive boutique will stock brands like C/meo, The Fifth, Keepsake, TY-LR, and more Down Under faves.
