Jones Apparel subsidiary Barneys New York plans to open Barneys New York CO-OP stores at Somerset Collection in Troy, Michigan and The Westchester in White Plains, New York this autumn.

Both of the new CO-OP locations range between 6,000 and 6,500 square feet and will be Barneys' eleventh and twelfth freestanding CO-OP stores to date.

Barneys chairman and CEO said: "The latest additions to the expansion of our CO-OP concept will be located in two of the premium shopping centres in the country. In the case of Somerset Collection, we will have the opportunity to bring Barneys New York CO-OP to a new market which believe will be a great fit for the concept.

"Our location at The Westchester will enable us to grow our business in a suburb of our New York base. We are continuing to explore additional opportunities for the national expansion of the CO-OP concept."

Barneys' CO-OP stores are aimed at a younger, trendy market while its traditional flagship stores target more refined, upscale shoppers.
