our new store, greenwich connecticut!

Last week, the Free People display team, the merchandisers, and the retail teams were all busy setting up our new store in Greenwich, Connecticut! You should definitely go visit the store and see how it came out, but here are some “behind the scenes” of the preparation.
The above photos are of the finished art in the fitting rooms. The display team hand paints, draws, stencils something unique in each room. Don’t they look amazing???
And here we have the transportation of the giant yarn balls. Looks like a comfy ride…
This is the first Free People store to have this cool new cash-wrap. (Don’t mind the mess, remember this was from setting up the store) The little windows are filled with treasures found in Hong Kong. Some have flowers, stationary, and other crazy sparkly Chinese decorations. One of our sweater designers, Amy, lives in Hong Kong and she found all of these incredible bits for us. She said she sourced them in these tiny hole-in-the-wall shops and alley ways. She had lots of fun finding them and it was so different from working on the sweaters. Thanks to Amy, the cash-wrap looks awesome! Go check out the store for yourself!

You guys should go into housewares more. Who wouldn’t want drapes like that in their home? Or at least, share lengths of cloth with us to get crafty with. :P

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the Greenwich store. I live in Westchester NY and I was waiting and waiting for a store to open near me (because prior to this one, Bloomingdales small selection had to suffice, either that or an hour car ride to Roosevelt Fields Mall) and just as it opened, I left for camp. You can only imagine my distress. Anyways, I went to the store a few days ago and I LOVE IT. Free People is by far my favorite brand/clothing and makes up 25% of my closet. So THANK YOU for opening a store in Greenwich. It looks INCREDIBLE and I’m planning on going back VERY soon.
