New season, new stores. Seriously—2013 is bringing some major additions to the Boston shopping scene, and for the sake of simplicity, we compiled them all here for you to take note. While some of these expansions and renovations have been widely hyped (RH and Nordstrom Rack, for example), others are local boutiques spreading their wings (like Wicked Peacock's first brick and mortar outpost and Viola Lovely's first space in Boston proper). A few stores already opened their doors this winter and others hope to put up signage before the year ends. Consider this New and Improved Retail 101.
