Cushman & Wakefield|CRESCO’s Shawn Fortner represented casual men’s apparel company, UNTUCKit, in the search for its first Northeast Ohio location. After an extensive exploration, the company chose Cleveland mixed-use development Pinecrest as its destination, with an opening date slated for later this Summer.
Founded in 2011, the New York based company has been rapidly expanding during the past few years to locations throughout the Midwest, including two Ohio locations in Columbus and Cincinnati.
The move signifies a growing trend for retail in Northeast Ohio. With the rise of online shopping and subsequent decrease of larger retailers and big box stores, mixed-use districts like Pinecrest are popping up to meet the growing demand for consumers who want a more diverse and unique shopping experience, and online retailers who still seek a brick and mortar presence.
UNTUCKit will join other niche retailers such as Tailored Epiphany, Vineyard Vines, Warby Parker & Thread – all considered emerging brands that are a critical component to the overarching retail strategy at Pinecrest.
