Five Below To Open First Manhattan Store

Five Below will open its first Manhattan store on November 2 on Fifth Avenue. Geared toward tweens, teens and beyond, the Five Below store is making its Manhattan debut at 530 Fifth Avenue, between 44th and 45th Streets.

Upon entering at street level, customers will be greeted by a giant, 567-square-foot Instagrammable mural depicting an iconic New York City scene. The store will also feature a “Big Apple” product area and a fun, upbeat shopping experience, the company said.

Five Below has opened over 30 stores in the outer boroughs and suburbs of New York City, but this is the company’s first foray into Manhattan. The Fifth Avenue location will mark the retailer’s 746th store nationwide. The company plans to have a total of approximately 750 locations by the end of the year.

“Fifth Avenue has long been the gold standard for any retailer, and we could not be more thrilled to bring our exciting shopping experience to one of the busiest blocks in the world,” said Joel Anderson, president and CEO of Five Below. “We’re confident that we’ll be an appealing destination to many of the thousands of people who will pass our doors every day.”
