Looking ahead to 2024, It’Sugar plans to open several large format stores, include an 18,000-sq.-ft. store at Miami’s Bayside Marketplace, and an 8,500-sq.-ft. location at Opry Mills in Nashville, Tenn.
“Our growth also includes adding our 2,500 sq.-ft. to 3,500 sq.-ft. [store] concept in markets around the United States and Canada,” Jonathan Schwartz, the company’s VP real estate & business development recently told Chain Store Age.
In November, It’Sugar opened 1,245-sq.-ft. in-store shops in Macy’s flagships on State Street in Chicago and at Dadeland Mall in Miami. The company began its partnership with the department store giant when it launched its first pop-up shop in the retailer’s iconic Herald Square in fall of 2021. The retailer is currently planning “additional locations in the future, and we look forward to expanding our partnership with Macy’s,” Schwartz said,
It’Sugar is a member of BBX Capital Inc.’s family of companies and a subsidiary of BBX Sweet Holdings.
The retailer operates more than 100 locations nationwide.
