In a statement issued by Nike, the company cites permitting issues in announcing that the SoHo grand opening has been delayed indefinitely. A new date will be communicated in the future, but the wristbands that have already been handed out will still be honored. See after the jump for more information.
"We look forward to bringing New Yorkers the best of Nike at our new Soho store. Due to permitting issues, the store will not open to the general public as planned on Friday, November 11th. We will communicate the new opening date as soon as possible. Scheduled product launches and consumer events are postponed until opening.
Any consumers who were issued wristbands outside the store prior to 9 pm on Thursday, November 10th will still be guaranteed their place in line for styles that were scheduled to drop on Friday, November 11th. In order to guarantee this access, these consumers need to come to the store by 6 pm on Friday, November 11th with their wristbands to be informed of next steps and offered a sign of our appreciation. No additional wristbands will be issued. We will provide the new launch date soon.".
