Big and Tall retailer takes on Big Apple

Destination XL Group plans to open its first store in Manhattan this June and promises the city’s big and tall men an upscale experience at its store on 699 Sixth Avenue.

Located in the heart of Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, the store will be in the company’s superstore format and feature more than 40 premium brands including True Religion, Michael Kors, Lacoste, and Brooks Brothers, as well as Destination XL’s extensive range of private label products. From a design standpoint, the store will feature manly attributes such as wider aisles and larger fitting rooms, as well as sofas, chairs and flat-screen televisions.

“We’re thrilled to be opening our first Manhattan store,” said Destination XL president and CEO David Levin. “As we continue to reinvent and modernize the retail experience and merchandise offering for today’s savvy big and tall consumer, our new Chelsea location offers the ideal space to serve our diverse customer base.”

The company currently operates 359 stores, of which 102 are in the destinational XL format. The company also operates stores the banners of Casual Male XL, Rochester Clothing, B&T Factory Direct, ShoesXL and LivingXL. The new Manhattan store is one of 40 Destination XL stores the company plans to open this year.
