CITY OF ELIZABETH CUTS THE RIBBON ON NEW CENTURY 21 DEPARTMENT STORE IN THE OUTLET COLLECTION – JERSEY GARDENS

 

ELIZABETH, NJ—May 14, 2013 — Bridget Zellner, Business Administrator for the City of Elizabeth, joined owners Isaac and Raymond Gindi, Councilman of the First Ward Carlos Torres and other officials at the grand opening of Century 21 (C21) within the Outlet Collection – Jersey Gardens. This new concept store offers designer clothing, accessories, shoes, home goods and more at up to 65% off retail prices.

“The City of Elizabeth would like to welcome Century 21 to the Outlet Collection – Jersey Gardens.  This opening is wonderful for the mall and our community, as it generates additional revenue, creates new jobs and attracts even more visitors to our City,” said Bridget Zellner, Business Administrator for the City of Elizabeth. “Century 21 already has a strong and loyal consumer base, which will only be increased by customers, who are looking for a quality shopping experience close to home. I know you will do very well here, as Jersey Gardens receives over 15 million shoppers each year.”

This new location features state-of-the-art interactive LED screens, where customers can share social content in real time. Styled looks highlighting top trends can be found throughout the store along with mobile point-of-sale capabilities, which provide easier and quicker shopping. According to Century 21, the appearance and feel of the 32,000 square foot space will be reinvented every six months to provide new inspiration for shoppers.

"We are always looking for opportunities to expand our brand and will be in great company among the many high-end retailers at Jersey Gardens," said Raymond Gindi, CEO of Century 21 Department Store. "We're excited to test this new small store format prototype in such a high-traffic area that caters to both locals and tourists."

Over 50 years ago, Century 21 first opened its doors in downtown Manhattan in 1961 and expanded to a total of seven stores across the New York/New Jersey area. In order to enable consumers to score great designer deals across the country, C21 debuted its e-commerce site in the spring of 2011. Shoppers can now go online to purchase the same high-fashion, low-price apparel found in stores. Everything from top designer men’s, women’s and children’s looks to cosmetics, handbags, shoes, lingerie, housewares, luggage and more are available at C21 for unbeatable prices every single day.

“I would like to thank Century 21 for choosing Elizabeth as its newest location,” said Carlos Torres, Councilman of the First Ward. “From clothing to accessories, this store offers so many name-brand options at affordable prices and I look forward to shopping here with my wife. Congratulations to Century 21 and best wishes for continued success as part of the Outlet Collection – Jersey Gardens.”

Century 21 is located in the Outlet Collection – Jersey Gardens,  651 Kapkowski Road, Elizabeth, on the Upper Level, near Door A. The store is open on Monday through Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. For more information, please call 908-351-1212 or visit http://www.c21stores.com.
