The retailer, which closed its previous store in the city back in 2014, expects to generate 25 percent of its total U.S. sales from the new location. J. Press also expects to generate about 30 percent of its total revenues online. The retailer’s Japanese parent company, Onward USA, expects online to eventually account for 50 percent of J. Press’ revenues.
