We look forward to welcoming them to an even larger and more innovative store in December, still located on the iconic 5th Ave. This expansion reflects the success of the Paris Saint-Germain brand and the original boutique development strategy we are implementing worldwide.”
Lawrence Berger, Co-Founder and Partner at Ames Watson, owner of Lids, and Chairman of FanzzLids Holdings, stated, “The decision to open an expanded version of our Fifth Avenue store was an easy one as we wanted to create an elevated space that provided customers with an unparalleled retail experience that is signature of our Club stores. This new store will be the largest to date, a premier destination that will offer unique licensed sports gear, headwear, and accessories guaranteed to appeal to our diverse shoppers. We look forward to continuing our strong partnership with Paris Saint-Germain to create first-of-its-kind retail stores.”
