The group currently numbers seven multi-brand stores, six mono-brand boutiques, 11 collector’s lounges, and a global headquarters outside of Philadelphia. It recently opened a store in Baltimore and is relocating its Ardmore, Pa., store later this year. A new multi-brand boutique in Manhattan Beach, Calif., is planned for 2025.
