Speak of the devil! Just as we heralded the arrival of new designer merchandise to the flagship Century 21 downtown, they go and open a whole new store in the Rego Park area of Queens. The new location, boasting "pure designer in every category, 40-60% off retail everyday" like its other siblings, announced itself via an email to those on the Century 21 mailing list, complete with a 25% off coupon.
This is the sixth location for Century 21 in the area, following their flagship, one in Brooklyn, one on Long Island and two in New Jersey. Because today was the grand opening, we don't have any reports on whether or not the denizens of Queens will soon be donning Gareth Pugh and Viktor & Rolf, but rest assured that we'll stop by for a full report soon enough.
