Barneys New York will virtually double its size along Chicago’s Oak Street this spring, moving across the street to a new six-story structure complete with a penthouse-style Fred’s restaurant and 90,000 square feet of selling space.
“We wanted to give our Chicago customers a richer experience, something that will parallel the Madison Avenue flagship in New York,” said Simon Doonan, Barneys New York creative director. “It would have been very easy to stay where we were, but this next step feels right for us.”
