Chanel Goes Bigger in Boston
After trying to secure a larger space here for years, Chanel today quintuples its selling space with a new 10,000-square-foot store. The store is its fourth biggest in the U.S. behind New York; Waikiki, Hawaii, and Beverly Hills, which is set to grow substantially thanks to the brand’s purchase of an adjoining building. The new store at 6 Newbury Street replaces a 2,000-square-foot space in the Taj Hotel, which closed Sunday.“We felt it was time to give an important city like Boston the size and scale of boutique that it deserves. Boston is a key cultural city in the U.S. and, in some ways, its historical importance to this country echoes that of Paris’ importance to France,” said John Galantic, president and chief operating officer of Chanel Inc.
