Gant revealed a 2,600-square-foot addition to its Fifth Avenue flagship this week. The space was created by knocking down a wall on the top floor of the store and annexing space that was previously occupied by a neighboring beauty salon. The addition expands the store to a total of 9,870 square feet on three selling floors.
The new space is dedicated to Gant’s Rugger label, which targets a younger audience than the core Gant brand. Rugger has been the company’s fastest-growing business, and now accounts for about 40 to 50 percent of wholesale sales in the U.S.
