Vineyard Vines has landed a whale of a space in Cherry Creek.
The company’s website says it has a Denver store coming soon at 2900 E. Second Ave., at the former Harman’s restaurant space at the corner of Second Avenue and Fillmore Street.
The clothier will move into about 4,000 square feet, taking the entire footprint of the former restaurant. David Hicks & Lampert broker Erik Christopher represented the tenant.
Vineyard Vines peddles its patterns and pastels from company-owned storefronts in 26 states and Washington, D.C. The brand’s website does not list any Vineyard Vines stores or other retailers that carry its whale-emblazoned polos in Colorado.
The brand, founded in Martha’s Vineyard, is docking at the same retail space that Harman’s Eat & Drink restaurant left late last year. Harman’s decided not to renew its lease facing a sharp rent increase, according to a Westword story.
The restaurant has been all but demolished at the Cherry Creek storefront, which will need remodeling before selling its first bow tie.
Vineyard Vines representatives did not return calls seeking comment on the Denver store by press time.
