Free People closing Greenwich Avenue store
In the wake of the March opening of its store in Westport, apparel retailer brand Free People is closing its Greenwich store at 351 Greenwich Ave.
The decision was made to close the Greenwich store due to the larger space available in the Westport locale at 645 Post Road East, according to a company spokesperson. Free People in Westport takes up 6,017 gross square feet.
The retailer, which is part of Urban Outfitters Inc., also has a location at the Danbury Fair Mall.
Greenwich Avenue has recently seen the closure of Ralph Lauren from its 19,000-square-foot, custom-designed building, along with news that Michael Kors wouldn’t renew its lease for a nearby storefront. Also, children’s retailer Gymboree has released a list of 350 planned store closures that include its Greenwich Avenue shop Janie and Jack.
