Barbour will open its second New York City store, a 1,993-square-foot unit at 123 Wooster Street, between Prince and Spring Streets, in SoHo. The space currently houses a temporary Barbour store for the holiday season, which will be closed and renovated prior to a permanent reopening in the spring. Barbour also operates a store on Madison Avenue. “It was fabulous that ownership could accommodate Barbour’s desire to open for the holiday season,” said Beth Rosen, managing director of Robert K. Futterman & Associates, which negotiated the lease. “123 Wooster Street and its location were natural fits for the tenant, given the close proximity to other fashion and outerwear retailers such as Patagonia, Icebreakers, Barneys Co-op, Cole Haan and Moncler.” The real estate firm also is marketing 5,296 square feet of retail space at 130 Prince Street, which is currently occupied by Swiss Army Victorinox and will be available July 1. Barbour operates 11 retail stores in the U.K.
