Framingham, Mass. - HomeGoods opened its first Manhattan location on the Upper West Side on Sunday, May 22. The two-story, 20,000-square-foot store is located at 795 Columbus Ave. (99th and Columbus). With the addition of this store, HomeGoods has three stores in New York City, including Staten Island and its recently opened Flatbush location in Brooklyn.
"We are excited to bring HomeGoods and our off-price concept to Manhattan," said Richard Sherr, president of HomeGoods. "New Yorkers are some of the savviest shoppers in the country who appreciate great style and value. We know that HomeGoods will be a welcome addition to the area because we offer outstanding prices on high-quality home fashions."
