An artisanal shop from Texas is open for business in Chelsea Market, just in time for the holiday season.
Neighborhood Goods, which sells across a wide range of categories including beauty and wellness, apparel and footwear, accessories, home and décor and many more is the newest merchant to be selling in the bustling, downtown market as of last weekend.
Over 40 different brands will be coming to the new location at Chelsea Market, helping make this Neighborhood Goods continue its “progressive department store” concept in Manhattan.
“At the core of the expansion, Neighborhood Goods is fostering a different approach to physical retail, with each of its locations offering a different set of features and functions for its brands,” the company said in a statement.
“Not only does this create more utility for brands, but it also ensures a local, relevant experience for customers, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach adopted by many retailers,” the statement added.
Compared to the original in Plano, Texas, this locations has a tighter footprint, a higher density of brands and products, and what the company described as a much different traffic profile.
Neighborhood Goods will host multiple in-store event concepts, trunk shows and pop-ups with partner brands made available to the public, the company confirmed.
That brand will also roll out a series of category-driven events, spotlighting brands within departments including children, apparel & accessories, beauty & wellness, home & living from launch through Friday, Dec. 13.
“Our approach to creating a more dignified retail experience is something, we feel, will be particularly well-suited to New York,” said Matt Alexander, co-founder and CEO of Neighborhood Goods. “With this fantastic line-up of brands, near-daily events, and more, we cannot wait to begin building our local community in the city.”
Come early 2020, this Neighborhood Goods will also have a snack bar. Tiny Feast will be offering convenient bites all day long and transition into a cocktail bar where shoppers can have a drink to unwind from all of the shopping.
