Boston -- City Sports today announced plans for two new stores, including its largest store to date, in New York City’s financial district. Slated to open at the end of March, the bi-level, 10,500-sq.-ft. space will feature an open floor plan and many other details that nod to the building's origins as a bank. The store will be City Sports' third location in NYC.
In addition, the chain announced a new location for its Chestnut Hill, Mass., store, set for a March 16 opening to coincide with the brand's 30th anniversary.
"We couldn't think of a better way to kick off City Sports' 30th birthday than with the housewarming of our new home in Chestnut Hill," said City Sports president and CEO Edward Albertian.
At over 9,200 sq. ft., the new Chestnut Hill space will feature new and expanded departments for women's apparel, footwear, youth and team sports. The chain’s footwear department also gets an upgrade with an in-store track and treadmill to test out more than 300 styles.
