BOSTON — Debi Greenberg is anything but shy. Savvy and opinionated, the 51-year-old owner of renowned luxury retailer Louis Boston is not afraid to take chances. “I just have the guts to go ahead and do things,” she says over a lunch of salmon and sake at Louis’ new restaurant, Boston Public
“I changed the silhouette of our suits back in the mid ’90s—I just decided we weren’t going to have any more pleats in the store because they were over,” she says. Greenberg also boldly dropped Zegna suits from the merchandise mix in 1996 after deciding that work-force suits were less relevant. “My consumer has never regretted that decision and I have never regretted that decision.”
