NEW YORK — Ian and Shep Murray are bringing Martha’s Vineyard to Memphis. The duo behind the highly popular Vineyard Vines sportswear label has partnered with the Levy family, owners of Memphis’s renowned specialty retailer Oak Hall, to open a new 6,000-square-foot Vineyard Vines by Oak Hall store in January—the first of its kind South of the Mason-Dixon line.
“Oak Hall is a great store and the Levy family has been doing an exceptional business with us for many years,” said Vineyard Vines CEO and cofounder Ian Murray. “They are doing so well with our product and our line has gotten so extensive that it’s really hard to give it the space and attention it needs without having its own store.”
