Brace yourself, Yeezy fans. Kanye West's much-anticipated Pablo pop-up store will open its doors for three days only this weekend in the Houston Galleria.

Late Thursday evening, West announced on his website that the temporary store will open at 5085 Westheimer (in the Galleria) from 10am-9pm on Friday, August 19 and August 20 and from 11am-7pm on Sunday, August 21. Hundreds of Kanye fans lined up outside the Galleria, eagerly awaiting their chance to shop. Some got there as early as 4am.

Some people who waited in the line won't be wearing all of the gear themselves.

"I'm gonna sell it," Maliq Jarmin said. "Just because I know everybody wants it. Everybody can't get it. They're gonna run out eventually."

Brandon Hall found a man selling the Kanye shirts on Facebook. They arranged to meet outside the Galleria for the purchase.

"I met this guy on Facebook. He came all the way from Conroe. He said he was only charging a few over, so I decided to get a few pieces rather than wait in the line with the rain," Hall said.


West is setting up shop in 21 cities around the world, including Houston, Dallas, Miami, Los Angles and New York.
