Century 21 Opens in Downtown Brooklyn
The discount department store Century 21 is making major moves. On October 11 at 12 noon, it is opening a massive 140,000 square foot store at Brooklyn’s newest shopping destination, City Point. The legendary New York based retailer is setting up residence at 445 Albee Square West (@ Fulton St.) in what has to be Brooklyn’s largest food, shopping, entertainment and residential areas along the corner of Flatbush and Fulton. Occupiers include the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Target, Trader Joe’s and DeKalb Market Hall. In over the next few years, City Point will completely transform the scene of Downtown Brooklyn, creating an influx of activity of entertainment, shopping, leisure and Brooklyn-centric eateries.

It spans four floors with extraordinary chandeliers and streamline fixtures, creating a boutique like experience. It will feature many draws including a Brooklyn Roasting Company Café, the LXR& Co luxury vintage boutique, and MAC cosmetics. “Our company appreciates communities rich with character – places where we can become an organic thread of the community and deliver real value to our consumers,” noted Raymond Gindi, Co-CEO of Century 21 Department Store. In addition, The Century 21 Brooklyn location will highlight the C21on1 stylist program. In an effort to expand their reach outside of the Northeast Region, Century 21 just concluded their pop-up project in Santa Monica, California in partnership with WithMe, which means they have more projects in the pipeline.
