BOSTON, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- City Sports today announced that it will open its 22nd retail location in New York City's financial district this Tuesday, March 26th. Coming on the heels of the successful re-location of their Chestnut Hill store in Boston, MA, this newest store will mark City Sports' third location in New York City.
The new financial district store, located at 50 Broadway, will be City Sports' largest retail location to date, showcasing nearly 11,000 sq feet of selling space. Known for its specially curated selection of athletic apparel, footwear and equipment, City Sports aims to continue to be the ultimate shopping destination for the urban athlete. This new location will mark City Sports' first NYC downtown location, as they continue to target growth in New York.
"We are absolutely thrilled to be opening a third retail location in New York City," said City Sports President and CEO Edward Albertian. "New York has been, and will continue to be, a major focus as we expand our footprint; we're confident this store is sure to set a new precedent in the New York market, while also being a fantastic complement to our two other New York City locations."
The new space at 50 Broadway will feature two floors of top of the line athletic gear including a new and expanded women's department which will incorporate an updated pant wall and one of the most comprehensive sports bra collections providing over 30 styles to shop. The shoe floor will be a key focal point of the new location sporting over 300 styles of footwear and a full staff to perform customer gait analysis and custom fittings. Other key highlights will include a full service Racquet Sports department that will offer demo racquets and free stringing for City Sports Insiders. Additionally, the store will feature an open floor plan to allow for easier navigation as well as iPads, which will be exclusively available for customers to shop or research products at citysports.com.
