Barneys Co-op is set to expand in New York and California. The year has started off well for Barneys with comparable-store sales up consistently from January through March. Comparisons with last year's double-digit declines might be easy, but the retailer is feeling optimistic with a strong customer response online and among brands like Lanvin, Dries Van Noten, Azzedine Alaïa, and Celine. Immediate expansion plans include an upcoming co-op in Brooklyn at 194 Atlantic Avenue in Cobble Hill, set to open mid-September, and a Santa Moncia co-op scheduled for August in Santa Monica Place. Barneys currently operates 19 co-op stores.
