Century 21 to debut home store
August 10, 2001,
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, though the date is still undecided.
A full-line department store, Century 21 already operates two locations — one here in the Bay Ridge neighborhood on 86th Street and one in Manhattan — with another on the way in Morristown, NJ.
The home furnishings department won, and the retailer redesigned the space from a warehouse to a store unlike its others. Spanning 20,000 square feet, it has an open feeling, Gindi said, with 15-foot-high fixtures along the perimeter and concrete floors "We were looking for something fresh," he said.
The merchandise assortment is still being worked out, he added, thought it will be able to offer more breadth. And because the home section in the Bay Ridge store across the street was moved into the new location, that store will undergo renovations as well, including the addition of a second level and escalators.
