NEW YORK — Century 21 Department Store, which rebuilt its flagship after 9/11, has completed further upgrades to the downtown site, adding three selling floors, MAC Cosmetics, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf café and renovations throughout.
“It’s the first off-price location for MAC, but MAC won’t be sold at discount,” Raymond Gindi, chief executive officer of Century 21, told WWD. “We’ve had a good partnership with Estée Lauder, the parent. We don’t discount their brand.” Generally, Century 21 offers discounts from 40 to 65 percent off, and up to 90 percent off on clearance.
“I see things on the hanger and I’m, like, ‘I never knew that color worked on me.’ It’s things you necessarily wouldn’t choose to wear, but once you put them on, you see why Janie is who Janie is." — Lily Collins on working with former "Mad Men" costume designer, Janie Bryant on creating looks for her role as Celia Brady's in Amazon series, "The Last Tycoon." 📸@jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
