Harper’s men’s clothing and sportswear store will move from its current location (114 W. College Ave.) to the former storefront location of boutique Sercy (224 E. College Ave.) this spring after 90 years in business in State College.
The new 6,000-square-foot space will be created by three fellow State College businesses, according to StateCollege.com — designed by Paula Cipar of Morpheus Studios with architecture by Albert Drobka and construction by Veronesi Building and Remodeling. Sercy, a shop that sold little gifts and accessories, closed its doors in April.
“We’ve dressed generations of Penn Staters for job interviews, game days, and graduations, and our new shopping environment will allow us to better serve the needs of the State College community,” Harper’s owner Brian Cohen told StateCollege.com. Cohen said Harper’s will use the new space to increase its clothing selection and in-house tailor shop and also to add a women’s boutique.
