Brooks Brothers to open country club concept

Bellevue, Wash. Brooks Brothers has announced it will open a “Brooks Brothers Country Club” concept store on Sept. 12 at The Shops at The Bravern in Bellevue, Wash.

The country-club collection debuted in 2003 and the first stand-alone Country Club store opened in 2007. The Bravern location will open in 4,800 sq. ft. on Level 1.

“We think the Country Club Collection is ideally suited to the active lifestyle we see in the Northwest. It’s a region that values what our brand embodies,” said Kathy Self, chief real estate officer for Brooks Brothers.

Currently Brooks Brothers Country Club stores are located in some of America’s premier resort communities including Newport, R.I.; Sarasota, Fla.; and two locations in The Hamptons on Long Island, N.Y.

Brooks Brothers Country Club is the fifth retailer to announce it is coming to The Bravern since the beginning of the year. It joins a growing list of firsts for The Shops at The Bravern, including Neiman Marcus, Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Hermes, LTJ Arthur and Tory Burch. The Shops, developed by Schnitzer West, are currently under construction and scheduled to open in September as part of the 1.6 million-sq.-ft. mixed-use development at the gateway to downtown Bellevue.
