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 Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
