NEW YORK — After 18 years at the same Madison Avenue address, J.Mendel will relocate a few blocks north this fall to double its store’s space.
The decision to pull up stakes for 787 Madison Avenue is part of an ongoing growth plan set in motion by its parent company, The Gores Group. The 2,745-square-foot setup will have three levels to show off its various categories. Gilles Mendel, creative director and chief executive officer of J.Mendel, said, “Since opening our existing boutique in 1995, we’ve introduced ready-to-wear, bridal, handbags, accessories and home furnishings. The new store will significantly increase our retail selling space, allowing us to show a full representation of the brand, and offer our clients an even more elevated level of personal service.”
