MERRIMACK, N.H., Dec. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Brookstone is ushering in the 2011 holiday season by expanding its retail presence in New York City with three new locations, 150 new employees, and a concierge service. A grand opening is scheduled for Friday, December 9.
The new Brookstone locations include iconic 34th Street (across from Macy's), East 86th St. and Lexington Avenue (across from Best Buy), as well as a new location in Rockefeller Center (concourse level) just steps from the skating rink. Now a total of 13 NYC locations, these three additions represent Brookstone's commitment to New York City.
"Brookstone loves New York - the greatest and most dynamic retail market in the world," said Ron Boire, Brookstone president and CEO. "With three new locations and 150 new jobs, New Yorkers and Brookstone will be even more connected this holiday season."
Grand opening festivities include free product giveaways all day at the three new locations on Friday, December 9. Shoppers will also get $10 off a qualifying purchase of $50. Standard terms and exclusions apply.
Brookstone introduced a concierge service this year in Manhattan. Shoppers simply phone with their gift needs, and trained personal shoppers will do the rest – including delivery in the city. Delivery is usually within 24 hours of purchase, and most items can even be gift wrapped for Hannukah or Christmas.
