Ralph Lauren New Hit by Expansion
Ralph Lauren may be experiencing the early stages of retail push for growth. This was the gist of comments by president and chief operating officer, Jackwyn Nemerov, and chief financial officer, Christopher H. Peterson. Yet, even though results were better than expected, profits still slid due to the infrastructure investments like store opening costs. Future store openings include: a Ralph Lauren luxury flagship in Greater China this fall, a Polo flagship on Fifth Avenue at the end of this month, a Polo store in Singapore next month, two Club Monaco stores in London, and the company is officially launching its Polo women’s line when the Fifth Avenue location opens.
