In a statement, Ray Etzo, vice president, retail stores for Cole Haan, said: “It was not our choice to close this location, but our lease expired and the owner had alternative plans for our space and that of several co-tenants. We have had a great relationship with our customers at Country Club Plaza over the years, as well as year after year success with our business.”
A tenant finish permit has been taken out for Lululemon for 401 Nichols Road. Lululemon officials couldn't be reached for comment.
Plaza officials also issued a statement: “We are continuing to create an exciting merchandise mix for customers on the Plaza. We will share information regarding future plans when appropriate.”
Cole Haan also closed a location in the Legends Outlets in 2016.
