The Real Real has found a location for its first bricks-and-mortar store on Wooster Street in New York's SoHo, where it will unveil a two-level, 8,000-square-foot flagship in November.
The new store is part of the online luxury consignment site's expansion into physical retail, which is being supported by a $50 million funding round that closed last month, bringing The Real Real's total funding to $173 million.
