LOS ANGELES — On the heels of its deal with Los Angeles-based Leonard Green & Partners, Topshop has planted its first location here as it revs up expansion in the U.S. and abroad.
Opening Thursday, the 30,000-square-foot store at Caruso Affiliated’s The Grove is Topshop’s second on the West Coast and fourth in the U.S. A highly visible store at a corner in one of the country’s most highly trafficked shopping centers, it will be a crucial test on the West Coast for Topshop, which is strategizing to become a serious retail contender nationwide.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
