Women's apparel pioneer Richard Sarmiento plans to expand his White House/Black Market stores into several new markets backed by an increased line of credit from retail asset-based lender Wells Fargo Retail Finance LLC. With an additional $2m on an existing $10m credit facility, White House/Black Market founder and CEO Richard Sarmiento will open first-ever stores in Dallas, Denver, and Hartford, Connecticut. The facility will also make it possible for Sarmiento to open a second store in Houston.
