RETAIL OPENINGS & CLOSINGS: BANG & OLUFSEN, HUGO BOSS, A TEMPO, NEW BARBER SHOP

There has been all sorts of action on Columbus Avenue in the past few months, with stores changing locations or closing and others moving in. There’s also a big new redesigned Hugo Boss in Columbus Circle.

Bang & Olufsen, the television, music and gizmo shop on Columbus between 75th and 76th, closed last month. The store still has locations in the Flat Iron District, in SoHo and on the Upper East Side. Thanks to Terry for the photo.

Men’s clothing brand Hugo Boss has expanded its Time warner Center store into a new three-story flagship, launching with a big party at the end of last month attended by Woody Allen, Josh Duhamel and others. The company also debuted a film about Central Park to celebrate the launch. You can watch it here. GQ clearly likes the new store: “And as for the reason everyone was there, the retail space itself, that too didn’t disappoint. The three-floor emporium holds all of Boss’ brands and proves the depth of covetable product the global juggernaut offers stylish men, from smart wingtips, to can’t-miss shirt, tie, and pocket square combinations, and, of course, every sharp-shouldered suit silhouette you can think of for work, play, and the red carpet.”

A Tempo, a women’s clothing store on Columbus between 73rd and 74th street, is moving a few storefronts North, just across 74th strete to the former home of Really Great Things (which itself moved a few storefronts away earlier this year. Thanks to Geoff for the photo/

A barber shop has moved into the The former narrow home of jewelry store Meehee on 72nd street just West of Columbus. They’re charging $15 a cut, for now. Oddly, there are about 4 places to get a similar cut for a similar price within about 200 yards of this store.
