An haute department store gets an all-American overhaul.
Debi Greenberg has finallyÂ fled the chain retailers on Newbury Street. In April, she moved her homegrown department store to an uncluttered stretch of Fort Point Channel â€” and while she was at it, she cropped â€śBostonâ€ť from the title. She says the changes reflect her decade-long pondering of an evolving American luxury consumer. Over the years, Greenberg has stocked fewer stodgy status labels and more creative, hard-to-find items by U.S. designers. But the culmination of her thinking is represented by Louisâ€™s new building: a space thatâ€™s laid-back yet lovely, with harbor views that upstage the merchandise.
