Marshalls, one of the nation’s largest off-price retailers, will open a new store in Bronx on Thursday, August 6. The 38,000 sq. ft. store will be located at Gateway Center (610 Exterior Street). Grand opening hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Regular store hours will be 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays. The new location will open with a Shoe MegaShop featuring designer and brand name shoes for the whole family and The CUBE, a hip, new in-store boutique. The store will add approximately 75 full and part-time jobs to the area.
Since opening its first store more than 40 years ago, the Marshalls name has become synonymous with off-price shopping. Customers can find incredible savings on men’s, women’s and children’s apparel, footwear, accessories and home merchandise every day. How will Bronx Marshalls offer the latest looks for less? Their buyers are the ultimate treasure hunters. They have relationships with over 10,000 ever-changing vendors in 60 countries. They speak with them daily, and unlike traditional retailers, buy much closer to the fashion season, which enables them to be smarter about trends and negotiate much better prices. Off-price stores, like Marshalls, don’t have stringent guidelines on how many items they purchase; that’s why no two stores are the same.
As a result, Marshalls stores receive up to 10,000 new items each week! It’s like visiting a whole new store every time!
Marshalls new concept, Shoe MegaShop, is an easy-to-shop shoe store, approximately 5,000 square feet, within Marshalls. “Our exciting new Marshalls Shoe MegaShop offers thousands of designer shoes with new styles arriving several times each week. Just pick out your favorite style, and look for your size in the boxes under the display,” said Marshalls Spokesperson, Laura McDowell.
In addition, Marshalls new high-energy in-store boutique, The CUBE, has a stylish look and feel, with a color scheme, music and lighting unique from the rest of the store. The boutique-inspired department allows young women to easily shop for fashion-forward designer clothes and accessories at amazing prices. Rather than being organized by size, apparel in The CUBE is organized by style, with coordinating accessories nearby, so shoppers can create a stylish, head-to-toe outfit more easily.
Marshalls has created strong national and local partnerships with charitable organizations around the country by supporting: Domestic Violence Prevention, The United Way Campaign and The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Marshalls is one of the nation’s leading off-price family retailers with more than 800 stores spanning 42 states and Puerto Rico.
With the addition of the new Bronx store, Marshalls will operate 78 stores in the New York market. For store locations, call 1-800-MARSHALLS, or visit Marshalls on the Web at www.Marsha
