Barneys New York Coming to San Francisco Union Square

Barneys New York, the uber-chic Fifth Avenue retailer, announced the signing of a lease to open a flagshop store at 48 Stockton Street in San Francisco. The site was previously occupied by the shuttered FAO Schwartz.

The 60,000 store is scheduled to open fall 2007. This follows the opening of the flagship Bloomingdale's store September 28, 2006 in the newly expnaded Westfield San Francisco Centre.

Union Square, once home to numerous flagship department stores such as I. Magnin, Jospeh Magnin, Liberty House, and the City of Paris, has consolidated in the past few decades and now houses Macy's, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Barneys is expected to inject some freshness into the area.

You can also find a Barneys New York outlet at Napa Premium Outlets.
