Update: Topshop slated to open in Springfield this fall

For many long months, eager shoppers have agonized over the teasing rumor that British retailer Topshop will be opening in Washington—a very big deal considering the store’s limited number of American outposts. Today, we can excitedly announce that the speculation wasn’t for naught: The casual-cool store is officially headed our way.

Following the announcement of a new location opening near Manhattan’s Rockefeller Center, Topshop owner Sir Philip Green informed Women’s Wear Daily of plans to open four more new units across the US over the next 12 months, “in San Diego, Houston, Atlanta, and Washington, DC.” He’s reportedly investing $50 million in launching the new stores.

Unlike the four others, the DC flagship location will not feature a Topman installation, but male shoppers can still grab guys’ clothing at the Topshop/Topman store-within-a-store in Pentagon City’s Nordstrom.

Now for more speculation: Where will the new store be located? Will it, as we guessed in the past, set up shop in the rapidly growing CityCenter? Tell us your guess in the comments.
