Tommy Hilfiger Closes Flagship Store in Manhattan
NEW YORK CITY —Tommy Hilfiger has closed its flagship store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, and the apparel retailer also plans to shutter its store on Collins Avenue in Miami on April 28. These moves mark the closing of the only two full-price Tommy Hilfiger stores in North America. According to executives, the closures will enable the company to direct resources and capital toward experimentation with new retail concepts and experiences, with an emphasis on appealing to younger customers. The four-story flagship store originally opened in 2009. Tommy Hilfiger is the latest apparel retailer to shutter a store on Fifth Avenue, following the likes of Lord & Taylor, Gap and Abercrombie & Fitch.
