Sarah Jessica Parker waits on customers at her shoe store after Sex And The City reboot confirmed


She’s set to make more than $1 million per episode to reprise the character of Carrie Bradshaw in a HBO Max reboot of Sex And The City.

But in the meantime, Sarah Jessica Parker continues to mind shop at her designer shoe stores in New York City.

On Sunday, the actress spent time serving customers at the boutique in the Big Apple’s Seaport District just south of the Brooklyn Bridge.

The 55-year-old kept her working ensemble low-key, pairing a brown v-neck sweater with pale gray joggers with elasticated waist and cuffs. 

She naturally put on a pair of shiny black heels from her own SJP Collection and matched them with a black cloth face mask.

The star wore her long hair with a center parting and pulled back from her face  in a single braid.

She was made up with smoky shadow and lashings of black kohl and mascara.

The Seaport store is one of two she has opened in Manhattan.

Her flagship store is located at W. 54th Street in Midtown and is the former Manolo Blahnik store which featured in her hit HBO series.

Parker debuted her first designer shoes in 2014 and told Footwear News last year that she had been both thrilled and daunted when she took on the famous location.

‘I have memories in this building, in this store,’ she said. ‘I have real, sincere memories of making those purchases, not making purchases, looking at stuff, and then its role in Sex and the City, and the way we got to be in this store.’

Parker starred as Carrie Bradshaw on Sex And The City from 1998 to 2004, and reprised the role in two big screen movies released in 2008 and 2010.

In 2016, she returned to HBO as the lead in the dramedy Divorce which ran for three seasons.

No doubt her shoes and her stores will get an added boost when she returns as Carrie in the reboot titled And Just Like That.

SJP is reuniting with co-stars Kristin Davis as Charlotte and Cynthia Nixon as Miranda but Kim Cattrall, who played sex crazy Samantha, won’t be returning for the new series.  

Author Candace Bushnell, who wrote the book on which the TV show was based, told PageSix.com last week that the reboot will work just fine without Cattrall.

Bushnell said she’s sure the writers of the reboot will have plenty of ideas to work from. 

‘You know what, I think it’s fine,’ she told the outlet.

‘I also think it will be interesting…. there’s a lot of interesting characters like Miranda. We are all Mirandas. Miranda is an interesting character — but I don’t know what they’re gonna do.’

Bushnell added: ‘Samantha is always going to be an inspiration to them… So somehow, I imagine she’ll be there in spirit and as an inspiration that gives them a chance of exploring sexuality with different characters.’
