Men's Wearhouse to Remodel 100 Stores
March 21, 2011
Houston-based The Men's Wearhouse Inc. recently announced plans to remodel more than 100 stores in 2011. By the end of 2011, nearly one-third of the company's fleet of 590 traditional Men's Wearhouse stores will be updated. "We're projecting 170 stores will be done by the end of the year," said Doug Ewert, president of Men's Wearhouse. Eventually, the entire chain will be remodeled. The company also is planning to open between 20 and 30 stores in 2011. New and remodeled stores will feature new design fixtures, such as wooden cubby holes for dress shirts, better lighting and an updated color palette. Additionally, sportswear will be merchandised at the front of the store, with a "focal wall" for casual sportswear pieces.
