J.McLaughlin continues to expand its retail store footprint.
The apparel retailer has opened in downtown Garden City, N.Y. The 2,800-sq.-ft. store — the brand's fifth location in the Long Island area — is designed with a modern “soft palette” featuring J.McLaughlin’s signature blue color.
The Garden City location comes amid J.McLaughlin’s ongoing expansion and follows the opening of the brand’s first store in Nebraska late last year. The retailer told Chain Store Age it plans to open 10 to 15 stores this year, with signed leases in place for Viera Beach and Fort Meyers, Fla., and Cashiers, N.C.
In November, J.McLaughlin opened its second ever men’s-only store, in Palm Beach, Fla., and shared plans to open more in the future.
“We are thrilled to open our newest J.McLaughlin in the Garden City community and are so excited to have found the perfect location for our store,” said J.McLaughlin CEO Mary Ellen Coyne. “Garden City is now one of our largest J.McLaughlin stores with a full selection of women’s and men’s modern classic styles. We look forward to building meaningful connections with new and existing customers and our team is dedicated to providing an exceptional atmosphere to shop with highly personalized customer service.”
Founded in New York in 1977 by brothers Kevin and Jay McLaughlin, J. McLaughlin is owned by private equity firm Brentwood Associates.
