Years of retail social Darwinism have weeded out independent specialty stores; only the strongest remain. Shari’s Place, a multibrand boutique on Long Island, is one of the survivors.
Ensconced in Greenvale, N.Y., since March 2011, the retailer is expanding. Shari’s Place this summer unveiled a 1,000-square-foot store in Southampton, N.Y., and is opening a 1,500-square-foot unit at the Bal Harbour Shops in Bal Harbour, Fla. In addition, Shari’s is looking for a store in the Carnegie Hill area of Upper Madison Avenue in Manhattan.
