You ever wake up some mornings with just the vaguest feelings of melancholia, a certain heavy-heartedness, and you're not sure where it comes from? Then you open the Daily News, and see that now only are Urban Outfitters and Target moving to your borough, but your neighbors are actually excited about it.
Brooklyn shopaholics rejoice: Urban Outfitters, a trendy clothing store, and a brand-new big-box Target store opened their doors to borough shoppers this week.
The hipster thread mecca will greet its first Brooklyn customers with free Brooklyn totes Thursday at its new location on Atlantic Ave. at Clinton St.
Meanwhile, shoppers have taken the new Target in Midwood by storm since it opened Sunday
Meanwhile, Andrea Esposito, 17, of Carroll Gardens, beamed at the sight of the Urban Outfitters store, longing for a new clutch purse.
"I've been waiting forever, since I knew it was opening," said the bubbly teen.
"I like their fashion and stuff. It's better, because I don't have to take the train."
Her mother, Cecilia Esposito, 46, agreed.
"Brooklyn has enough restaurants. Now all we need are stores and we're complete, and we don't have to go to the city," she said.
Khristen Genga, district merchandising manager for Urban Outfitters, was equally psyched.
Excuse us. If you need us, we'll be off whimpering in a corner.
