A third location is planned for 2017.

Luxury brand John Hardy announced it will enter owned retail in the U.S. with the launch of its Houston boutique this September, to be followed by its New York City brand flagship in November. The company also plans to open another location in a third market in early 2017.

“The retail stores will really be a distinctive 3-D articulation of the brand’s powerful design, dramatic detail and inspiring meaning,” says John Hardy CEO Robert Hanson. “We also firmly believe that these boutiques will have a positive impact on the sales performance and productivity of our national and independent partners in the wholesale channel because they will increase brand awareness and engagement.”

The Houston boutique will be located in the River Oaks District in a 1,000-square-foot corner location. It is scheduled to open this September. The boutique in New York City will be located in the heart of SoHo’s luxury corridor at 118 Prince St. in a landmark preservation three-story building from the early 1900s. The 1,200-square-foot space will open this November.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
