A drab psychiatrist's office or flattering track lighting, can't-stop-the-movement music, and racks upon racks of stuff we want—we think we'll choose retail therapy over the real thing every time. Of course, of course, we kid; not all woes can be banished with a browsing bonanza, but we're sure the thrill of entering a shiny new shop at least beats a St. John's Wort supplement. And really, there is no better time to get your window browsing next-leveled than the end of summer—yeah, that's, like, now—when all the fall goodies drop. We already know you've got your regular haunts, so we did some research that doesn't spell "thrilled" for our bank balances (oh, the things we have for you!) to compile a list of summer's hottest new store openings that'll have you stocked up for months to come. Just call us your naughty neighborhood pharmacist…this is one prescription that's truly habit-forming.
