In the wake of Onward Reserve’s long-term lease agreement, the specialty men’s lifestyle store will be moving from its current 925 square-foot space in Building South to a 1,688 square-foot space in Building North between The Cosmetic Market and Anthropologie. The new location will offer an expanded selection of menswear and gift options and is slated to open in early November 2015.
