Lord & Taylor is returning to the city with a mini store

Lord Taylor began 2019 by closing its massive New York store after more than a century in business. It will end the year by opening a tiny new one.

The department store will return to Manhattan this holiday season as a temporary shop, according to a person familiar with the matter who asked not be identified because the plans haven’t yet been announced. This will give Le Tote—the company’s new owner—a chance to re-connect with customers in the middle of the busy holiday shopping season.

The shop will be just 2,400 square feet—much smaller and more tightly curated than Lord Taylor’s sprawling, 676,000-square-foot flagship on Fifth Avenue. It will open for two weeks in mid-December in New York’s SoHo district on Wooster Street, surrounded by upscale names like Mansur Gavriel and Diane von Furstenberg.
