PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Fans of Kanye West living in the Rose City may want to clear their shopping plans for this weekend.

The rapper and fashion mogul is opening 21 pop-up versions of his Life of Pablo stores across the planet starting August 19, including a location in Portland.

A post on West’s Twitter feed shared a map from his site showing the cities where the pop-ups were opening, with 13 opening in the U.S. in cities including Los Angeles, New York and Miami.

Internationally the stores will be in London, Toronto, Berlin, Amsterdam, Cape Town, Singapore, Melbourne and Sydney.

According to Vogue, there will be custom items for each city, including T-shirts and hoodies, in addition to other items inspired by the West’s upcoming “Saint Pablo” tour and “Life of Pablo” album.

West said a New York pop-up event earlier this year generated $2 million in sales of items including thrift store jackets customized by West for $400.

The exact location of the pop-up in Portland has not been released, but should be announced within 24 hours of the store’s launch on KanyeWest.com.
