For those keeping track on where Nick Wooster was going to land next, the wait is over. And not only is he serving as a Creative Director, he bought a piece of the business too. WWD announced this morning that Wooster partnered with Atrium and bought a stake in both of the retailer’s New York City locations. Owner Sam Ben-Avraham will retain full ownership of the Miami location, while both Atrium’s Brooklyn and Manhattan stores will be renamed Atrium Wooster in the coming weeks.
He might be a street style star, but the man every camera lens is pointed on is a vet in the retail game. After previously serving in positions with Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and most recently J.C. Penney, you can guarantee that he’s using those experiences to bring Atrium to the next level. “I’ve always thought of myself as a retailer. Anybody can pick fantastic product, but you have to be able to make money too” adds Wooster. We can’t wait to see all the instacop jawns he has in store.
