Menkens department stores to offer full line of men’s apparel
Menkens, a chain of department stores that has been in business since 1905, has announced plans to launch full-line men’s clothing at its largest department stores in the next two years.
The move will add more than 3,000 pieces to the Menkens men’s department store line, with plans to bring in new product each week.
The company will also continue to develop its online store and expand its partnerships with brands including Nike, Adidas, Converse, and Reebok.
The decision comes at a time when women’s apparel is experiencing a resurgence in the retail space.
In addition to Menkens’ plans to open more department stores at its larger stores, it plans to introduce a full line at the smaller stores.
This will include a variety of brands and a new line of accessories.
“We’re thrilled to be able to partner with some of the world’s leading designers and retailers to launch our latest collection at Menkens,” Menkens Chief Operating Officer David Smith said in a statement.
“Our goal is to bring more men’s style and comfort into the department store experience and help create a more inclusive, inclusive environment for our customers.”
The Menkens new line is part of the company’s plan to expand its online presence, which will include its first women-owned store.
Smith said that Menkens would continue to invest in its online operations, including its Menkens Women’s Store.
Menswear company brands like Nike and Adidas are also expected to participate in the Menken program.
According to Smith, the Menks plans to invest $100 million into the online and in-store retail spaces in the coming year.
Menkens plans to roll out a range of new accessories including men’s sunglasses, men’s accessories, mens accessories and accessories for men, men footwear, men accessories for women, men men’s jackets, menmens clothing, menmen’s hats, men jackets and men jackets for women.
