AEROS’ BUILDING BLOCKS: Lee Shafkowitz, president of Aeros, a showroom on Manhattan’s 57th Street that specializes in high-end Italian lines such as Pierre Guidi outerwear, is stretching his reach.
As part of the company’s management consulting business, he is overseeing the opening of three Pancaldi 1888 stores. The Italian knitwear company plans to open its first two American stores Friday in Las Vegas and in the Woodbury Commons mall in Central Valley, N.Y. The third unit is expected to bow near Thanksgiving in Leesburg, Va.
