Yes I would say so...........since three of the signs (signage) is already up on the building - yes I would say the Sanborn's is a GO.

I live here and like it much better than South Beach. With that said, I will be in back Boca Raton in 2 days.

I ran in to 3 sales trainees for the new Sanborn's in 5ta Algeria about 10 days ago. They told me that Sanborn's plans to open in November.
I will wait-and-see as with everything else here. I would say possible but not probable November opening.

Victoria's Secret was opened last night when we passed by. Did not see any customers, but it was fully stocked, lights on and appeared opened for business!

Coming are both STARBUCKS and FOREVER 21.

Victoria's Secret is more beauty and accessories. Perfumes, etc. but not bras, lingerie.

Not happy about VS and the lack of bras!!! If u live here, good bras are difficult to find!!

Also, $160 pesos for one pair of cotton underwear? Yeah. I don't think so.

I was told yesterday that the reason that the new VS here carries no undergarments is that all VS bras, panties, etc. are made in China. And Mexico imposes a duty on goods made in China that can be as high as 500%. Which = no VS garments here. I was wondering why their original banner said "Victoria's Secret Beauty and Accessories". Now I know why.

ZARA is now open in Paseo del Carmen.
