British boy-band sensation and global tween heartthrobs One Direction are opening up their first-ever pop-up shop in North America, and it’s going to be in Toronto (to think people even question Toronto’s status as a world-class city!). The launch of the 1D World store this Saturday at 680 Yonge Street just happens to coincide with the end of summer vacation, meaning the most ardent Directioners can score their sunglasses, T-shirts and iPhone covers in time for the first day of school. Anyone planning to head down, be warned: the Australian store saw line-ups of fans numbering in the thousands camped out hours in advance of the store opening, belting out catchy One Direction tunes. Alas, the opportunity to purchase a shirt adorned with the expertly coiffed band members is only temporary, as the shop is set to close September 2. Phew. [h/t Toronto Star]
