Woman Shines The Light On The Downside To Kanye West Pop-Up

A Melbourne businesswoman has contacted Kanye West over his decision to open a store in Fitzroy.

Charlotte Knightly who says her dress is Galerie Montmartre at 179B Brunswick Street, says that because of the 700 people standing outside the Pablo pop-up store, her customers felt too intimidated to come into her store.

Knightly has estimated the losses for her store at $6,000 and has asked for Kanye to write them a cheque for their losses.

Kanye announced he was opening stores all around the world on Thursday, before they opened on Friday through Sunday, with opening hours being 8 AM to 10 PM.

The queues were blocking businesses in the area but it is not thought they would lose money but, Knightly is arguing the opposite.

The Facebook post now has over 4,000 likes and over 250 comments.
