New York | Police in New York City have lunched a fresh appeal for information over a theft at Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop shop last month.

The 43-year-old Iron Man star opened her lifestyle brand’s pop-up store, goop mrkt, in Manhattan’s Columbus Circle in November, and just weeks later the shop was targeted by thieves who escaped with more than USD 173,000 worth of merchandise.

Officers of the New York Police Department who are investigating the theft have now released CCTV images of two men they want to question in connection with the incident, and launched a fresh appeal for information.

Security was stepped up after the theft, and the store closed its doors on Christmas Eve. Paltrow’s actress mother Blythe Danner spoke out after the incident and insisted her daughter was not too shaken up.

I called her immediately (after I heard). And she said, ‘Oh, Mom, it’s OK. It’s good publicity’, she said. She always has a good spin on things, and I admire her tenacity and her upbeat message.
