Neiman Marcus has announced that they are going to downsize their future flagship store at Related Companies' Hudson Yards. The retailer had originally planned on building out 250,000 SF as the anchor store for the 1 million SF complex. It now is reported that Neiman Marcus is looking at cutting out between 10,000 and 70,000 SF from their original plan. The retailer has reported 7 consecutive quarters of declining sales and has been struggling with matching online competition and decreased foot traffic in malls. Earlier this year it was reported that Related Companies and Neiman Marcus were discussing Related Companies taking an ownership stake in the retailer, which is owned by Private Equity firms Ares Management and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board. Neiman Marcus also owns Bergdorf Goodman. Hudson Yards is 70% leased and is expected to be completed in 2019.
