City Sports to open largest store to date, in NYC’s Financial District

BY Marianne Wilson

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.

Sweets & Snacks Expo to feature international attendees

BY CSA STAFF

WASHINGTON — A show devoted to snack food is expected to draw suppliers from 22 countries when it kicks off in May, the show’s sponsoring organization said.

The 2013 Sweets & Snacks Expo, which will take place May 21-23 at Chicago’s McCormick Place, is expected to be the most successful in the event’s 16-year history, with a nearly sold-out show floor, according to the National Confectioners Association.

"NCA recognizes the power of U.S. brands around the world, and the expo serves as a destination for global markets to come together," NCA president Larry Graham said. "The 2013 expo is the ideal venue to connect with industry professionals from around the world and to discover international products and trends that will set retailers apart from the rest."

In addition to Brazilian, Chinese, German and Mexican pavilions, the show will have its first-ever Ecuadorian pavilion. Latvian prime minister Valdis Dombrovskis will visit the show as well, and the show will feature products from companies like Sweden’s Solberga Konfektyrfabrik, Netherlands-based Hellema Hallum, Latvia-based Pure Chocolate and products from Argentina, Saudi Arabia and Russia.

"Every year, we host a number of country pavilions, but in 2013, we are thrilled to host a new country’s pavilion, and number of new international companies as well," Graham said.
