What's Another Day for Chloé?... Toledo Time... Timberlake Does Oprah...

Los Angeles-area Chloe devotees anticipating this week's scheduled opening of the long-awaited Melrose Place boutique will have to wait.

WHAT’S ANOTHER DAY OR TWO?: Los Angeles-area Chloé devotees anticipating this week’s scheduled opening of the French brand’s long-awaited Melrose Place boutique will have to wait just a little longer. The 2,500-square-foot, town-house-style store — the brand’s first stand-alone outpost in Los Angeles — was to debut Wednesday and was fully stocked with accessories and ready-to-wear, but remained shuttered after city inspectors found several code violations requiring correction, including replacing a white handicapped decal in doorways with a blue one and modifying a door, before the store gets the green light to open to the public. Store staffers now have their fingers crossed for a Saturday debut. The Los Angeles boutique already has been a long time coming. Chloé leased the space about two years ago, but extensive construction and permitting delays meant many months of unanticipated work on the store structures. After all this time, perhaps patient fans will be willing to wait a few more days, or can make a shopping trek 50 miles south to Costa Mesa’s South Coast Plaza mall, the nearest open boutique.
