Two major retail spaces are about to open up on two very distinct stretches of Fifth Avenue. Crain's New York reports that Joe Fresh will be subleasing its stores at 510 Fifth Avenue (near 43rd Street) and 110 Fifth Avenue (near 17th Street) and vacate both properties in the coming months, though it's unclear when. The brand will keep their stores near Penn Station and on Broadway in Soho.
It's yet another turbulent change this year for the Canadian fast-fashion retailer, whose namesake founder left as creative director in March. Joe Fresh also announced that it would discontinue its JCPenney partnership just a few weeks ago.
