Year-end Review: New York’s Best Store Revamps


New York City -- It’s true: Everything old is new again. New York City’s retail maven, Faith Hope Consolo, chairman, The Retail Group, Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate, New York, has put together a list of her favorite store makeovers of the past year. As Consolo notes, even the most iconic stores must constantly present a new, fresh face to keep shoppers coming. Here are her faves:

  • Apple's simplified cube (767 Fifth Ave.);

  • LaCoste's grand redo (Fifth at 49th);

  • Mauboussin's brightening of a still fabulous new store (714 Madison Ave.;

  • Mulberry's work (605 Madison Ave.);

  • The completely re-freshed Fresh (872 Broadway);

  • The experimental Limelight Marketplace’s change from a mall to a department store feel (656 Sixth Ave.);

  • Bloomingdale's. Several years in the making and still ongoing, it will create a completely new store (1000 Third Ave.); and

  • Barneys at 660 Madison Avenue. With a new Men's Co-Op, new main floor and dining options, it's a complete and stunning redo (660 Madison Ave.).
