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.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
