NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Century 21 Department Store, the iconic New York shopping destination, announces this month the opening of C21 EDITION, hosting special collaborations with designers, presentations, private sales and events throughout the year. While Century 21 has always been the boutique of the off-price industry, this new concept store marks an important expansion for the company and a significant step toward elevating the off-price shopping experience.
Located at 21 Dey Street, the site of the original East River Bank, the 3,100 square foot space will feature three unique floors to be used for private sales, entertaining and networking. From the street, two giant double doors open to reveal a two-story atrium. Custom-built columns, crown molding and glass domes, along with contrasting textures of raw and polished concrete, create an industrial feeling with pockets of warmth providing the ultimate setting for private designer events.
With an increasing number of residents moving downtown, C21 EDITIONis poised to be the preeminent venue for luxury designer sales, placing top brands in an exclusive, highly designed and fully functioning boutique environment – completely void of the old-fashioned department store experience.
This fall will see Conde Nast Publications moving in to 1 World Trade Center, while the opening of Fulton Center, dubbed "downtown's Grand Central," is expecting over 300,000 customers daily. Add to this the opening of Westfield World Trade Center in early 2015, and C21 EDITIONwill have over $1.2 billion in retail and dining foot traffic directly across the street.
C21 EDITIONwill open to the public on November 21, 2014 and is located at 21 Dey Street at the corner of Church Street in downtown New York City. While designer-hosted events will be invitation only, the space will be open daily, with renowned vintage boutique LXR&CO operating Monday-Friday from 745AM-930PM, Saturday from 10AM-9PM and Sunday from 11AM-8PM.
