Kanye West pop-up store draws long line of fans in the Galleria

HOUSTON – Dozens of Yeezy fans started lining up at 10 p.m. Thursday for the opening of a Kanye West pop-up store in the Galleria.  

West announced earlier this week via Twitter that for three days he's opening 21 stores worldwide.

Thirteen stores will be in major cities in the U.S. Others will be in Toronto, London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Singapore, Sydney, Melbourne and Cape Town.


West is expanding the pop-up store concept after similar events in New York, Los Angeles and Paris earlier this year. West said the New York event generated $2 million in sales, including thrift store jackets customized by West that sold for $400.

Fans in Houston will be able to buy "The Life of Pablo" merchandise, created alongside his latest album of the same name beginning at 10:30 a.m. Friday.
