The idea that America can be viewed almost in the same terms as an emerging market is one that is gaining some traction. In fact, it has an address — 136-50 Roosevelt Avenue in the New York City borough of Queens. That is the location of the Flushing branch of Macy’s, where Clarins executives gathered on Tuesday afternoon to inaugurate their newly renovated counter, measuring roughly 500 square feet.
The importance of the event was underscored by the presence of Philip Shearer, global chief executive officer of the parent Clarins Groupe. He was accompanied by Natalie Bader, the recently named president of Clarins brand international; Jonathan Zrihen, president and ceo of Clarins Groupe Americas, and Danyelle Boilard-Paul, executive vice president and general manger of Clarins Groupe USA.
