PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global outdoor leader Columbia Sportswear (Nasdaq:COLM) is pleased to announce the grand opening of its flagship Columbia brand’s first branded store in New York City. Located at 345 W. 14th Street, in between 8th and 9th Avenue in New York’s Meatpacking District, the retail store opens on November 24 and will offer an extensive range of Columbia’s innovative outerwear, apparel and footwear.
“We’re thrilled to open our doors in the Meatpacking District of New York City to provide our city consumers long-awaited access to our lifestyle and technical products. We eagerly welcome the opportunity to keep New Yorkers warm, dry, cool and protected so that they can have more fun outside in this extraordinary city,” said Shawn Cox, Columbia’s senior vice president of retail. “People know that they can turn to Columbia for ski trips and hiking excursions, but they also count on Columbia to deliver urban looks and functional all weather solutions.”
Although the Columbia brand has a solid presence in New York and throughout the Northeast, this will be the first time New Yorkers can enjoy the full brand experience. With its clean design and boutique feel, the new store will instantly warm up visitors with the broadest assortment of Columbia’s innovations.
The Columbia shop will offer several key styles in men’s, women’s and kids apparel, ranging from technical yet fashionable women’s Minx boots to new ski jackets inspired by the company’s uniform partnership with the US Freestyle Ski Team. And timed perfectly for the winter weather, customers can find Columbia’s collection of TurboDown™ Performance Enhanced Down throughout the store. TurboDown is a revolutionary patent-pending insulation layering construction that features natural down, synthetic insulation, and silver reflective lining in every baffle.
The store is open to the public from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Sunday.
