Canavan, executive vice president of Tiffany & Co. “Since we were last in SoHo, Tiffany has circled the globe, creating a style that is legendary. We're thrilled to return to build an elegant new store that is truly home to Tiffany's great heritage.” Tiffany's new SoHo store will be the jeweler's third location in New York City.
