Century 21 Opens First Department Store in Florida

by Katie Lee

New York City — Just in time for the holiday season, one of the nation’s largest outlet and retail shopping centers welcomes New York-based Century 21 Department Store to Sawgrass Mills, a Simon Center, in Sunrise, Fla. The new store, which will open on December 16, 2016, marks the 55-year-old retailer’s 12th location — and its first in Florida.

“Through our many years in this business we’ve been a destination for domestic and international travelers who seek designer brands at incredible values, so naturally Sawgrass Mills was a perfect fit for us,” says Raymond Gindi, co-CEO of Century 21 Department Store. “Our proximity to prime tourism areas like Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Palm Beach will create an opportunity for us to engage with a thriving community of locals and leisure travelers alike.”

The Sawgrass Mills location will feature a value-minded luxury experience for shoppers with wide aisles, high ceilings and luxurious fitting rooms. The 85,000-square-foot store will feature women’s, men’s, shoes, accessories, fine jewelry, children’s, cosmetics (including an in-store MAC Cosmetics) and home departments.

The Florida location will also feature the C21-On-1 Stylist Program, providing guests the opportunity to book a free one-on-one appointment with a fashion stylist. Additionally, C21 has partnered with LXR&Co. to offer guests an exclusive collection of vintage designer handbags, accessories, jewelry & watches.

For more than 50 years, Century 21 Department Store has operated in the off-price sector. In recent years, the company has experienced expanded growth with the opening of three additional stores (Philadelphia, Valley Stream, N.Y., and Brooklyn, N.Y.). Additionally, Century 21 Department Store experimented this summer with a pop-up venture in Santa Monica, Calif.

Century 21 Department Store has been a New York City icon for more than 50 years. The retailer is headquartered in downtown Manhattan and recently opened its 11th store at City Point in downtown Brooklyn. Locations in New York include Lincoln Square, Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island. There are three stores in New Jersey: Paramus, Morristown and Elizabeth. Century 21 Department Store opened its first store outside of the New York metro area in Philadelphia, followed by Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise, Fla.; in 2018, it will open at American Dream in East Rutherford, N.J.
