NEW YORK — Sandwich, the latest retailer you’ve never heard of to land on these shores, arrived by way of the Netherlands last month when it unveiled its first U.S. store at the Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas.
Sandwich is part of a larger trend of small-to medium-size foreign specialty retailers opening stores Stateside. While these chains may be popular in their home countries, they have little or no name recognition here. Nonetheless, mall operators have embraced the newcomers at a time when many American retailers are closing stores or scaling back expansion plans.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
