Gant will open three new stores during the next four months, inking leases for Los Angeles, Boston and Georgetown. The expansion boosts Gant’s presence in areas outside the Northeast, where New York is its largest U.S. market. The new shops will join four existing units, including the Fifth Avenue flagship and the Gant Rugger shops on Bleecker Street and Prince Street in New York, as well as the Gant Campus Store at Yale University in New Haven.
The 1,700-square-foot Los Angeles store, located at 1308 Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, will open its doors in July. It will be dedicated to the younger Gant Rugger label, which is men’s only, and the Gant by Michael Bastian designer collaboration, which offers both men’s and women’s. The decor will incorporate lighter, more modernist elements than the two vintage-inspired Gant Rugger stores in downtown New York.
