Luxury Resource Anichini to Open Fifth Avenue Store
March 20, 2006,
Tunbridge, Vt. – Anichini, the luxury bedding supplier, will open a retail store at 230 Fifth Avenue in New York later this year.
With all the potential luxury customers nearby, Dollenmaier feels it is a good business opportunity, similar to those offered at the company's other retail locations in Los Angeles, Dallas and a boutique in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in the Cayman Islands. “We need a retail presence in the area beyond our boutique at ABC Carpet & Home.”
Last year, the company moved and enlarged its wholesale presence in 230 Fifth, she added. “We've been in the building for 10 years. Marti [Dollenmaier, company president] came up with the idea for the Quorum, a cooperative home textiles showroom that pioneered the luxury segment on the 19th floor.”
“We outgrew the space and wanted to raise our presence a notch as well as expand the showroom for our growing hospitality business.”
The showroom is on the 20th floor, adjacent to a high-end restaurant that will open soon.
