New York has many iconic destinations, but few have stood the test of time like Century 21 Department Store. For decades, the store has maintained its status as carrying  an exclusively edited, high-end designer selection at incredible values. And now, to celebrate their 50thanniversary, Century 21 is expanding from their Financial District roots with a second Manhattan location and seventh metropolitan area store, opening on September 22, 2011.

Located at 1972 Broadway, the new Lincoln Square outpost will bring Century 21 to the city’s latest epicenter of fashion, culture and art on the Upper West Side, where Merecedes-Benz Fashion Week now resides.

Keeping in step with the neighborhood’s signature chic, Century 21 commissioned internationally renowned design firm, Barteluce Architects, to create a modern aesthetic reflective of the brand’s 50 years of iconic fashion history. The contemporary space includes distinctive features such as backlit soffits that speak to the intersection of luxury fashion and everyday value that is a cornerstone of the Century 21 brand.

“This move represented a rare opportunity for Century 21 to benefit from a prime retail location that will provide added convenience to many of our existing and potential customers,” said Raymond Gindi, principal of Century 21. “For over 50 years, we’ve been accustomed to our Downtown store being a destination for value-oriented, high-end fashion consumers in Manhattan as well as abroad. We believe 1972 Broadway is already a destination for our current and potential guests and we are very excited to bring our brand to the Upper West Side and to become a part of the Lincoln Square community.” Look for the new Century 21 Department Store at 1972 Broadway, opening on September 22!
