Hunting for decent retail space in the Big Apple can take years. Barcelona-based apparel chain Mango, knows that for sure. Finding the perfect gem to open its first flagship store in NYC was a laborious task.

Mango, a company which targets young demanding cosmopolitan women, operates more than 850 stores in 81 countries, located on five continents.
