LAS VEGAS — Fast Retailing Co.’s acquisition of J Brand is bearing fruit in a more detailed strategy to open the premium denim brand’s first stand-alone retail stores in Los Angeles and New York in the coming year.
Eight months after Japan’s Fast Retailing, which also owns Uniqlo, Theory and Helmut Lang, purchased a majority stake in J Brand for $290 million, the company is negotiating to secure a location for its Los Angeles store that will open by next summer. The second outpost will bow in New York by the end of 2014.
