NEW YORK — Ralph Lauren plans to open a store at 711 Fifth Avenue between 55th and 56th Streets, just 14 city blocks south and one avenue west of the company’s existing men’s and women’s units on Madison Avenue near 71st Street.
“It is true that we have committed to the Fifth Avenue location, the former Disney space,” a Ralph Lauren spokesman said, declining to provide further details or reveal when the store might open. However, sources believe the size will be 35,000 square feet.
