Robb & Stucky shopping for Florida stores
Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, August 22, 2011
The new owners of the Robb & Stucky name are scouting sites for stores on Florida's west coast, according to an online report by Naples (Fla.) Daily News.
The first store location and possibly more could be announced within 30 days, the report said.
The owners - Samson Holding CEO Samuel Kuo and his family - acquired the rights to the Robb & Stucky name and intellectual assets for $470,000 earlier this year following the Fort Myers, Fla.-based chain's bankruptcy.
According to the local report, the new owners hired Prime Sites in Coconut Grove and Naples, Fla., to scout locations.
"We are focusing on Florida. We are focusing on the west coast," Prime Sites partner Monette Klein-O'Grady told the paper.
One location out of reach is Robb & Stucky's 85,000-sq.-ft. main showroom in Naples. Former CEO Clive Lubner and son Dan Lubner already have snagged that location for new company Clive Daniel Home, which they expect to soft open in October.
