J.Jill to unveil new redesigned store concept
01
Nov '13
The premiere specialty retailer J.Jill unveiled a redesigned store concept in four markets across the United States. The store design is a pure expression of J.Jill's mission, offering easy, relaxed and inspired style to a woman with a rich full life.
 
"The new approach to store design is based on our understanding of what is important to our customers. We want to delight her with our beautiful, versatile collections and inspire her confidence with our guiding service," said Paula Bennett, CEO and President, J.Jill. "The new stores offer her a very warm welcome."
 
The store design also draws influence from the notion of "uncomplicate" – the brand platform that J.Jill launched earlier this year. "Uncomplicate" represents the brand's way of saying: Trust us to take care of what you wear, so you can focus on the things in life that are most important to you. 
 
The new store concept thoughtfully guides a women's shopping experience in a modern, easy to navigate, beautifully designed retail space.  
 
The new prototype stores will launch in the pre-holiday season in four cities: Short Hills, NJ; Huntington Station, NY; King of Prussia, PA; and San Diego, CA. The company's goal is, "to learn how the new stores, based on the brand promise of "uncomplicate", impact the shopping and customer experience and to build on the feedback to guide future expansion," said Chris Gayton, Senior Director, Brand Marketing.
 
The new stores were designed by New York-based Kramer Design Group, a multidisciplinary design firm specializing in retail consumer experiences. J.Jill selected Kramer Design Group because they are positioned at the juncture of design, brand building, retail merchandising and store productivity.
 
"The prototype stores delight the J.Jill customer's sense of personal style and thoughtfully guide her experience. Spot lit lifestyle displays down the center, flanked by individual shops, give the customer a uniquely effortless shopping experience," said Robin Kramer, President of Kramer Design Group. 
 
"By dramatically expanding the dressing rooms and using a palate of soft grays, winter whites and warm woods throughout the store, our goal was to make shoppers feel relaxed, inspired and engaged."
 
The new stores will open at the Short Hills Mall in Short Hills, NJ; Walt Whitman Shops in Huntington Station, NY; King of Prussia Mall in King of Prussia, PA; and Fashion Valley in San Diego, CA.
