A little more than a year after closing its men’s flagship at 1070 Madison Avenue in Manhattan, Peter Elliot is in an aggressive expansion mode.
The independent specialty retailer, which has operated stores in different locations around Manhattan since 1977, has four stores in the city: Peter Elliot Boots on Lexington Avenue and 80th Street, Peter Elliot Blue on Lexington Avenue and 72nd Street, Peter Elliot Boys across the street from Blue on Lexington Avenue and 72nd Street and Peter Elliot Women on Madison Avenue and 81st Street. That’s not enough for owner Elliot Rabin, who is in the planning stages to more than double the size of the 72nd Street location by fall and open an outpost at The Carlyle hotel.
