New York-based Club Monaco closed their Lenox Square store Saturday June 30th for renovations that will keep the store closed to the public until later this fall. Store patrons were emailed over the weekend informing them of the renovation plans. Having called the store for moreinformation, I was told the store should be closed 8 weeks, re-opening around August 8th.
Lenox Square is the Club Monaco's only Atlanta-area location. The brand began in Toronto, Canada in 1985, and was purchased by Ralph Lauren in 1999.
The Lenox Square store is located on the main mall level, adjacent to Faconnable.
There had been rumors months ago that the Club Monaco store was closing for good, but apparently those were incorrect.
To the left of Club Monaco, 7 For All Mankind from Greensboro, North Carolina-based VF Corporation, closed its Lenox store a few months ago. To the right of Club Monaco, Chris Burch (Tory's ex-husband) is bringing his new concept C. Wonder to the mall in the former Sony Style space. Given the proximity of the still vacant 7 store to Club Monaco, I was surprised to hear that there are no plans for a temporary store during the renovation process.
