Construction Underway on New Upscale Clothing Store

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (October 7, 2004) – Hubbell Realty Company is pleased to announce they have been selected as the developer and construction manager for Sarto, a new upscale Italian clothing store to be located at West Glen Town Center in West Des Moines. Designed by Shiffler and Associates, the 3,800 square foot store is already well under construction with a spring completion date planned. The store will be Euro-modern with a minimalist feel. The exterior will be deliberately splashy to capture attention and feature camel and white brick with black awnings and aluminum cornices. “It's much more urban than traditional. This will be evident in the interior design as well,” states architect Bryan Shiffler. Co-owned by Dave Lemons and Tim Sitzmann, Sarto is part of Midwest Clothiers, a local group of upscale clothing stores including Mr.B., Badowers, and Reichardt's. No longer will shoppers have to go on-line to find their favorite designers. Sarto will feature clothing lines from Hugo Boss, Zanella for men and women, Etro, Burberry womens, Canali, Pal Zileri, and Lacoste. “Our goal is to bring merchandise to the Des Moines market that previously could only be found in much larger markets. We want to create a store with a high level of service and a great relationship with its customers,” says co-owner Dave Lemons. To further this relationship, the store will have a tailor on-site. Steve Niebuhr, Senior Vice President of Hubbell Realty Company states, “We were very pleased to be working with an organization such as Midwest Clothiers. They are an excellent company to work with and, I believe this new store will be a great addition to the retail offerings in the Des Moines area.”
