TOKYO — Barneys Japan is preparing to open a store in the port city of Kobe in spring 2010 in the first step in a renewed expansion program.
The new store will be the island nation's fourth Barneys, joining the retailer's two outposts in Tokyo and a store in Yokohama, Japan's second-biggest city. Barneys Japan also said it is planning to open more stores in Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka, and experiment with smaller store formats, e-commerce and outlets.
