Samsonite will open its first Staten Island location at Empire Outlets, New York City’s first retail outlet center.
The new outlet will be located alongside 100 other designer retailers and steps from the Staten Island Ferry.
The 1,924 s/f spot will offer shoppers travel bags, luggage, and associated accessories.
“We’re excited to have Samsonite join our vibrant, diverse and growing roster of incredible retail partners,” said Joseph Ferrara, principal of BFC Partners, developer of Empire Outlets. “This is just the latest step toward making Empire Outlets one of New York City’s top shopping and dining destinations.”
The majority of Empire Outlets’ retail and restaurant spaces are already leased and BFC Partners is actively in discussions with several prominent tenants for the balance of the lifestyle center. Empire Outlets is expected to open in Fall 2018.
“I continue to try and deliver best in class brands to Empire Outlets that currently do not exist on the borough,” said James Prendamano, of Casandra Properties, leasing broker for Empire Outlets.
