Levi Strauss appoints PBS for domestic store expansion
May '08
PBS Real Estate announced that Levi Strauss & Co (LS&CO) has appointed New York-based PBS Real Estate Advisors for its domestic store expansion program.

The team will be led by Laura Pomerantz, an experienced retail advisor and principal of PBS, who will work with Levi Strauss management in identifying and securing prime street sites in major U.S. cities, as well as key locations in heavily trafficked shopping malls, to support Levi's multi-year retail expansion plan.

"We are pleased to have Laura and the PBS team on board as we continue to roll out our domestic footprint. Their expertise and strong network of relationships will greatly benefit our program," stated Mark Breitbard, President, Retail and E-Commerce Levi Strauss & Co.

Levi Strauss began an expansion of its owned and operated stores in the United States three years ago. Currently, there are 48 owned and operated stores open in the U.S. that feature the Company's most innovative product as well as classic 501 jeans.

This week, Levi Strauss opened a 6,500 square foot store in Times Square, the fourth Manhattan location for the Company.

"We look forward to working with Mark and his talented team in helping Levi's achieve their national retail expansion goals and add value to this iconic brand with its strong American heritage," commented Laura Pomerantz, Principal of PBS Real Estate.
