NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Century 21 Department Store will open an approximately 70,000-square-foot, two-level store at Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream, NY, on the South Shore of Long Island. The location will be the tenth department store operated by this highly successful chain and will create a total of 228 permanent and temporary jobs within the community.
The new Century 21 Department Store at Green Acres Mall will serve as an anchor for the Sunrise Highway portion of the center. Macerich acquired the 1.8-million-square-foot Green Acres Mall in January 2013 and has since been actively elevating the merchandise mix and shopper experience, including the addition of a recently opened Flagship store for H&M. As well, Macerich is currently developing the new, 335,000 square-foot Green Acres Commons next to the mall, which will feature DICK's Sporting Goods and other top-drawing, large-format stores. Green Acres Mall is ideally situated in a densely populated area that includes Nassau County's famed Five Towns. The addition of Century 21 will further expand the center's appeal for this affluent trade area.
"Century 21 is a sophisticated, marquee anchor for Green Acres that ups the game for this incredibly well-situated regional mall," said Randy Brant, Executive Vice President, Real Estate, Macerich. "We're always focused on adding value to our one-of-a-kind properties, and at Green Acres we are delivering retail attractions that expand the property's appeal across the city and the suburbs. Century 21 is a true destination, and we have been so pleased with its impact since opening last fall at our joint venture project in downtown Philadelphia, which we are now redeveloping as Fashion Outlets of Philadelphia @ Market East. We are exceptionally pleased to welcome this great department store to Green Acres Mall."
"It's an honor to be a part of Macerich's elevation of the Green Acres Mall. We believe this is an ideal location to expose us to both an urban and suburban luxury-seeking shopper. We're very enthusiastic about furthering not only our growth as a company, but to be able to offer jobs and fashionable values to the local community," stated Raymond Gindi, CEO, Century 21 Department Store.
The store will open to the public on October 27, 2015 at 11:30AM and will offer free valet parking for the remainder of 2015 to all C21 STATUS members with a purchase of $50.00 or more. To join C21 STATUS, visit c21stores.com/c21status/.
