Century 21 Expanding Manhattan Flagship Store

Friday April 5th, 2013 - 10:06AM


Century 21 Department Store has announced the official grand expansion of its flagship location in downtown Manhattan this month. The retailer will unveil the newly renovated space with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, April 9 at 9:30 a.m.

In an effort to further upgrade the shopping experience, Century 21 has added three new selling floors to house its offerings of pure designer merchandise in every category, totaling six floors and over 225,000 square feet of shopping under one roof.

The newly expanded location will feature The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf cafe. A new M.A.C Cosmetics store will also open on the ground floor, which will be fully staffed with the brand's makeup artists. Additional updates include renovating store fixtures and decor, creating extra fitting rooms and widening aisles to create a more spacious shopping atmosphere. Revamps will continue through spring as the retailer finishes renovations on its shoe department.

"The redesign is all part of our commitment to deliver the best possible shopping experience," said Raymond Gindi, CEO of Century 21 Department Store. "We are extremely excited about the expansion and proud to be part of the downtown evolution as the area's fashion anchor for over 50 years. Renovations have and will continue to create new jobs, helping to support the local economy and downtown community."

"We are thrilled to be opening at Century 21's Financial District NYC location and to be a part of the revitalization of the neighborhood," said M.A.C Global Brand President Karen Buglisi. "At M.A.C, we pride ourselves on both artistry and community building and we welcome New Yorkers and visiting tourists to experience M.A.C at our fully staffed counter now open on Century 21's newly renovated cosmetics floor."
