One Direction fans line up on opening day of 1D World store

Updated:
TEMPE, Ariz. -

English boy band, One Direction, continues to gain popularity.

They were discovered during the British version of the X-Factor back in 2010 and now they're taking the us by storm.

It's a dream come true for teenage girls in the valley.

Saturday morning a store opened up at Tempe Marketplace, and all they sell is merchandise from the band One Direction.

But, it's only in town for a few weeks.
    
A line wrapped around Tempe Marketplace all morning.

Hundreds of fans waited for hours to walk inside 1D World: the store that has all things One Direction.

"I cried like 50,000 times and I was just emotionally unstable so many times, like, I can't even talk right now," said Cindy Segura, a One Direction fan.

Whether these fans love Niall, Zayn, Liam, Louis or Harry, they can find everything from T-shirts, to press-on nails, even jewelry and cardboard cutouts.

Doors opened at 9 a.m., but some of fans waited in line since 5 a.m. and once inside, they broke out in song.

Locations were selected to host One Direction pop up stores based on fan support, and it's easy to see why Arizona won.

The store closes on June 9.

    Wineries flourish in Brooklyn

    Hundreds of oak barrels of wine are all stacked in one room. You might think this is Napa, California. But it's not. It's the Brooklyn Winery, located in what was once an old pickle factory in Williamsburg. Refrigerated grapes are brought in from the North Fork of Long Island and from the Finger Lakes and then aged in barrels. These days urban wineries are becoming more popular, and they're popping up all over the borough.
