Yesterday we brought good news to fashion-conscious Washingtonians with confirmation that those rumors of Topshop heading to the area are true. Today, Topshop spokesperson Richard Storer tells us that the 5,000-square-foot flagship store will set up shop at Virginia’s new Springfield Town Center, scheduled to open this October. 

The location is a far cry from CityCenterDC, the space most often mentioned in rumors surrounding the opening. But Storer says the decision to branch out into Northern Virginia was one of careful research “of where to best place the brand within that particular territory,” and that the development of the center and the brands it will include “sit well with Topshop.” Topman won’t be a part of the new store, he adds, as part of a larger strategy to allow the two brands to “breathe” and operate separately.

Springfield Town Center sits at the site of the former Springfield Mall, which closed nearly two years ago to make way for new development. Only Macy’s, Target, and JCPenney currently remain; when construction is complete this fall, the new shopping center is likely to house Michael Kors, Banana Republic, and more high-end retailers in addition to trendy Topshop.
