It looks like J.Crew is planning to expand the brand by opening up a new shop in Williamsburg. According to The Real Deal, the retailer has its eyes on a space at 247 Bedford Avenue. There are 13 retail spaces up for grabs, and the newest owners of the building are trying to lease all of them to either furniture shops, restaurants and clothing stores. The folks at J.Crew haven't confirmed anything, despite rumors of a leaked handbook. We'll have to wait and see.
