The New Ashley Stewart Announces a Grand Opening Event
April 23, 2011 – 458 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, NY

Brooklyn, NY (April 21, 2011) – Take the leading fashion-plus trend retailer, Ashley Stewart, and bring it to the fastest emerging retail corridor at the heart of Brooklyn – the legendary Fulton Street – and you have the beginning of a true Brooklyn Downtown Renaissance.

On Saturday, April 23, 2010, Ashley Stewart will open its flagship Brooklyn store – featuring a newly-redesigned look – at 458 Fulton, with an all-day celebration hosted by the beautiful and talented DJ Tabu. “This is a celebration on many levels,” says Steve Newman, President of Ashley Stewart. “The new design of our store is the perfect beacon for the revival of retail in the Brooklyn area. Ashley Stewart grew up on the streets of Brooklyn 20 years ago, and we are proud to play a significant role in the rebirth of a landmark New York location.”

You’re going to see the revitalization of Fulton Street in 2011, and Ashley Stewart is leading the charge,” said Crown Acquisition’s Isaac S. Chera, one of the area’s largest property owners. The legendary Fulton Street Corridor – the third largest commercial center in New York City, with up to 100,000 shoppers a day – is poised for a major transformation this year, and Ashley Stewart is the first on the block.

Ashley Stewart will make its new home a few doors down from the 30,000 sq. ft. site of the future H&M, the 125,000 sq. ft. site of the new City Point retail and residential development, and less than a mile from the future home of the NBA Nets basketball team, a 675,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art sports and entertainment venue.

Ashley Stewart’s new store starts with a fresh new look. A bright interior and modern lighting fill the new Brooklyn flagship store, attracting customers into an elegant escape from all the hustle and bustle on the street. Floor-to-ceiling displays built into backlit walls illuminate intensely powerful images of gorgeous, curvy, and super-sexy models. It’s hard to look away. The easy-to-shop, trend-right fashions are arranged in vignettes that offer an array of styles reflecting NY Fashion Week runways – Ashley Stewart at its best.
