(Staten Island Advance/Mark Stein) STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Two new businesses have opened in the Staten Island Mall as part of the New Springville shopping hub’s push to provide new retail choices to customers as the holiday season approaches. Victoria Secret’s PINK and White House Black Market set up shop earlier this month. PINK opened on Sept. 7, across from the recently remodeled Victoria’s Secret, on the lower level of the JC Penney wing, and White House Black Market (WHBM) opened nearby, at center court, on the lower level. “We are extremely pleased with their grand opening results,” said Mall marketing director David Albertson, regarding WHBM, a women’s clothing store geared toward professionals and young adults. “The Staten Island customer seems to be very receptive to styles and fashions of [the store].” According to the company, the store offers fashionable, sophisticated clothing and accessories from everyday basics and wear-to-work, to elegant fashion. The stock is rooted in a black and white color scheme, but shoppers will find related shades with seasonal color splashes. The 3,600 square-foot boutique will offer shoppers an in-store offer of $20 off their full-price purchase of $80 or more through Oct. 13. As for PINK, shoppers were happy to visit the store, which carries casual clothing ranging from leggings and yoga wear to T-shirts and hoodies. Marla Espejo, of Bayonne, often visits the Mall. She likes its wide selection. She said the PINK store has good variety and the staff is very helpful.
It just makes a difference if people are talking about it.” Cher, 67, also added she could twerk “If I wanted to I’ve seen other girls do it better (than Miley).” “It just wasn’t done well,” Cher said.“ She can’t dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn’t great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don’t stick out your tongue if it’s coated. If you’re going to go that far, then think about it before you do it.” Later Cher took to her Twitter account to retract her claims. “I didn’t keep my big opinionated mouth shut,” Cher wrote. “What I should have said (was) `I didn’t like it that much, but she’s pushing the envelope, being an artist. She’s talented and didn’t commit a felony’.” She then added `Truthfully she was f—ing brilliant `cause we’re still talking about it.” One Republic frontman Ryan Tedder told News Corp Australia he was worried about the impact Cyrus’ using nudity to publicise her music would have on teenage girls. “With the `How naked can I get’ thing she’s doing, that’s on her,” Tedder said. “I just don’t want 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 year old girls staring at that and thinking of `OK, the most valuable asset I have is my body, especially if it’s naked, and the more naked I get, the more successful I get’. “I’m not cool with that. I want teenage girls, and guys, to be motivated to work hard. Learn how to write hard, practice your instruments. Become a phenomenal talent like Adele or Beyonce. Don’t just take your damn clothes off.
