Century 21 readies new home store

Brooklyn, NY — Century 21, the shopping mecca for customers looking for great deals on designer duds, will open its first home store here in September.

After consolidating merchandise in a warehouse across the street from the Bay Ridge location to another facility, the company decided to use the space as a standalone store for one of its departments, coo Raymond Gindi told HTT. The retailer redesigned the space from a warehouse to a store unlike its others. Spanning 20,000 square feet, the home store will have an open feeling, he said, with 15-foot high fixtures along the perimeter and concrete floors "We were looking for something fresh," he said.

A full-line department store, Century 21 already operates two locations — one here in Bay Ridge on 86th Street and one in Manhattan — with another on the way in Morristown, NJ.
