Redford’s Sundance Retail Operation Expands

With the addition of two new stores, Sundance Catalog, founded by actor Robert Redford, is expanding to five locations. The two newly designed locations from the lifestyle retailer will open this year in the Edina Galleria in Edina, MN, in September and NorthPark Center in Dallas, TX, with up to five additional units planned for 2016, the company stated.

Sundance Catalog emphasizes a strong historical commitment to the artisan community in its operation, offering, the company noted, a unique environment for artists and craftspeople to reach a broad audience of enthusiasts.

“We are excited to embark on our next phase of retail growth,” said Sundance Catalog CEO Matey Erdos. “With a highly productive catalog division and a recently enhanced e-commerce platform in place, we are confident our customers will enjoy the benefits of a growing retail network. Having recently celebrated our 25th anniversary, we feel the time is right to lay the foundation for the next 25 years of growth.”

He added, “We have the privilege of curating distinctive, artisan collections, many items of which are exclusive to Sundance Catalog. We feel it is important to bring these collections directly to our customers, and the retail environment we have so carefully designed does so in a distinctive and captivating way.”

Founded in 1989 by Redford, Sundance Catalog characterizes itself as a premier lifestyle brand retailer of women’s and men’s apparel, footwear, jewelry and home decor. The company opened its first store in 2007 and currently operates locations in California, Colorado and Utah, as well as an e-commerce website.
