Sawgrass Mills, the largest outlet and value retail shopping destination in the U.S., will bring another coveted fashion powerhouse to South Florida with the addition of a Century 21 Department Store. The approximately 85,000-square-foot anchor store will be the first in Florida – and the first anywhere in the nation outside of the Northeast – when it debuts at Sawgrass Mills in the fall of 2016.
“Century 21’s choice of Sawgrass Mills for its expansion into the Southeast brings one of the world’s most esteemed retail concepts to Sawgrass Mills’ unmatched lineup of the best global brands at great prices,” president of The Mills Gregg Goodman says.
“With South Florida seeing growth in new full-time and seasonal residents from both domestic and international destinations, in addition to its continued popularity with travelers, there is a built-in synergy between our brands and customers that promises great rewards for all,” he adds.
Century 21 is known for its legendary and exceptional offering of designer label and brand name merchandise sold at unbelievable prices, and for its trendsetting styles and first quality assortment of merchandise. The new location at Sawgrass Mills will feature men’s, women’s and children’s apparel, footwear, outerwear, lingerie and accessories, as well as home goods.
“For more than 50 years, we’ve been a destination within the New York market for high-end fashion consumers seeking incredible values,” CEO of Century 21 Department Store Raymond Gindi says. “As Sawgrass Mills has become one of the world’s most recognized and successful shopping destinations for people from around the corner and around the globe, the choice of where to locate was obvious when we made a decision to bring Century 21 to the Southeast to local, seasonal and international audiences.”
According to Goodman, The Mills has purchased eight acres, which previously housed the VF Factory store and parking area, to serve as the site for the new Century 21. The store will be conveniently located in the heart of Sawgrass Mills near The Colonnade Outlets. Century 21 will join the ever growing number of retailers with outlets exclusively at Sawgrass Mills, including AllSaints, Armani Outlet, Diane von Furstenberg, Diesel, GUCCI, kate spade new york, and Tory Burch. Other first-in-market outlet stores opening soon at Sawgrass Mills are 7 For All Mankind, Ted Baker, La Perla, Alexis Bittar, Vince and Zadig & Voltaire.
