Century 21 expands Manhattan flagship

NEW YORK — Century 21 Department Store is expanding its popular downtown Manhattan flagship store.

The new store, which will be unveiled on April 9, will featue three new selling floors to accomodate its expanded merchandise assortment. The store will now total six floors and more than 2250,000 square feet.

The newly expanded location will feature The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf cafe. A new M.A.C Cosmetics store will also open on the ground floor, which will be fully staffed with the brand's makeup artists. Additional updates include renovating store fixtures and decor, creating extra fitting rooms and widening aisles to create a more spacious shopping atmosphere. Revamps will continue through spring as the retailer finishes renovations on its shoe department, making it even easier for guests to navigate.

"The redesign is all part of our commitment to deliver the best possible shopping experience," said Raymond Gindi, CEO of Century 21 Department Store. "We are extremely excited about the expansion and proud to be part of the downtown evolution as the area's fashion anchor for over 50 years. Renovations have and will continue to create new jobs, helping to support the local economy and downtown community."
