CB2 to open New York store
March 21, 2007,
Northbrook, Ill. – CB2, the lifestyle retail concept of Crate & Barrel designed for a younger, more contemporary, hipper customer, will open its first store in New York at 451 Broadway, in lower Manhattan’s trendy Soho district.
The 18,000-square-foot site will have an entrance on Broadway as well as one on Mercer Street . It is on the same block as the Z Gallerie store that opened in New York last year.
The six-story building is owned by Warren Leshen, owner of closeout fabric specialty firm, Dukane Fabrics. Dukane previously occupied the store, and since moved to the third floor.
The store will be the first CB2 outside of its Chicagoland home base where it presently has two units. Parent Crate & Barrel operates two Manhattan stores; one nearby on Broadway at Houston, the other on Madison Avenue and 58th Street .
