Valentino sues to close Fifth Avenue boutique in Manhattan, blames pandemic

In a complaint filed on Sunday, Valentino said the store, located two blocks south of Trump Tower, can no longer operate “consistent with the luxury, prestigious, high-quality reputation” of its neighborhood, as the lease contemplated.Valentino told its landlord Savitt Partners it planned by year end to quit its lease, which began in 2013 and expires in 2029, but said the landlord wrote on Friday that it would not accept a surrender.

Savitt’s lawyer did not immediately respond to requests for commentคำพูดจาก Game Casino. A spokeswoman and a lawyer for Valentino declined to comment.The lawsuit in a New York state court in Manhattan is one of several between retailers such as Gap, H&M, Victoria’s Secret and the National Basketball Association and their Manhattan landlords after the pandemic forced store closures.Valentino’s store is at the midpoint of a half-mile (0.8 km) stretch of Fifth Avenue from Rockefeller Center to the corner of Central Park containing many luxury retailers, with high rents.Much of that stretch became dormant in mid-March, when New York officials closed “nonessential” businesses to curb the spread of the coronavirus.Some restrictions were lifted on Monday, and some in-store shopping is now allowed.But Valentino said shoppers have grown fearful of “in person, ‘non-essential’ luxury retail boutiques,” and that “even in a post-pandemic New York City (should such a day arrive)” the Fifth Avenue location was irreparably damaged.Keeping the store open is “impractical, unfeasible and no longer workable,” it said.On June 8, Victoria’s Secret, part of L Brands Inc, filed a similar case to void the $938,000-a-month lease for its flagship store in Manhattan’s Herald Square.
