Rebag opens Miami flagship
today Jun 15, 2019
Luxury handbag marketplace Rebag has opened its seventh brick-and-mortar location in the Miami Design District.
The two-story Miami store, located at 140 NE 40th Street, serves as Rebag's first flagship location in the southern U.S., "with more to come soon," said the New York-based company, in a press press release.
The store will offer a variety of designer styles, and will feature Rebag’s ‘Hermès Birkin Wall' -- a display of Birkin bags that is now a fixture in each Rebag location. In addition, the Miami flagship will also house the company’s signature ‘Rebag Bar', where customers can authenticate and sell a bag in less than an hour.
"[Miami’s] vibrant culture and appetite for luxury is the perfect setting for Rebag," said Charles Gorra, founder and CEO of Rebag.
"Miami has a global reach with customers visiting from all over the world. This new location, with its unique clientele will allow us to reach even more customers looking to both buy and sell luxury designer handbags."
The new store opening follows the company's recent funding announcement, totaling $52 million to date. Looking forward, Rebag plans to increase its portfolio of stores to 30 in the medium-term, including both standalone stores and locations in major luxury malls.
To help manage this expansion, Rebag recently appointed Geronimo Chala as its vice president of retail. Previously, Chala served as managing director at CH Carolina Herrera and general manager at Tesla North America.
Currently, Rebag operates brick-and-mortar locations in New York, California and Florida, in addition to managing a mobile app and e-commerce platform.
