In what may be the biggest {good} news in local retail in quite some time, J. McLaughlin has announced its plans to move into the newly refurbished Westfield Flatiron building in Downtown Westfield.

The classic family clothing store will be opening their 136th store at 44 Elm Street in August, according to the Downtown Westfield Corporation (DWC).

The shop offers quality apparel for women, children and men, including quality silks, sporty cottons and cashmeres alongside tongue-in-chic martini-glass embroidered Bermudas, DWC added in its monthly newsletter.

J. McLaughlin currently has seven NJ locations including Summit, Morristown and Princeton.
