Hermès started looking for a location in metropolitan San Diego about three years ago, and the recession didn’t change the luxury retailer’s game plan.
“We’re really long-term thinkers, so [the economy] is not as much of a factor in our current expansion plans,” said Robert Chavez, president and chief executive officer of Hermès USA. “We plan 10 or 15 years out, so this was one of those decisions that’s part of that, and we’re here for the long term.”
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
