Gant Rugger has inked leases for two stores in Brooklyn, N.Y., in Williamsburg and Boerum Hill, as New York City’s trendy outer borough increasingly attracts prominent fashion marketers. Both locations are slated to open in November.
Located at 115 North Sixth Street, on the corner of Berry Street, the Williamsburg store is 1,300 square feet, plus an additional 600 square feet of backyard space. The Boerum Hill unit, at 357 Atlantic Avenue, is 600 square feet.
