Russeks was a department store on 390 Fifth Avenue and West 36th Street, New York.
Russeks started as a furrier in New York City the early 1900s, and expanded into luxury clothing and accessories. In 1924, they opened a department store on 390 Fifth Avenue and West 36th Street. This was the Gorham Building, designed by Stanford White of McKim, Mead & White, and completed in 1904-1905 for the Gorham Manufacturing Company.
In February 1959, they announced the closure of their Fifth Avenue store, after five years of losses, but would continue to operate in hotel and suburban locations. In 1960, the new owner, Spear Securities, remodelled the exterior of the lower floors.
