Cost Plus World Market® Grand Opens Its First New York City Location

Grand Opening Events Begin on Thursday, August 20, 2015

Cost Plus World Market® is thrilled to announce the grand opening of its first store in New York. The Manhattan store, located in Chelsea at 620 6th Avenue between 18th and 19th Streets, will be the San Francisco Bay Area-based specialty retailer’s first small-scale home store.

Already well known for its broad and unique assortment of home goods, including furniture, textiles, ceramics and glassware, home décor, jewelry and accessories and global food and wines in its other 260-plus stores across the U.S., the new Chelsea store will focus solely on living, dining and bedroom furniture, lighting, an expanded rug assortment including one-of-a-kind antique rugs from Turkey, small décor pieces and throw pillows.

At 5,000 square feet, the Chelsea home store is a well-edited mix of the retailer’s best offerings. The store will showcase lifestyle vignettes, giving customers ideas and inspiration on how to furnish their own homes. The store will also offer New York-area customers the opportunity to see in person select online-only offerings, including custom upholstery furniture with fabric swatch samples available to take and view in their home.

“We’re excited to be opening our first store in Manhattan this month. The store is a great way to introduce the Cost Plus World Market brand to New York customers, who may not be familiar with our assortment of unique and affordable home furnishings. We have no doubt that once a customer discovers us, they’ll become a frequent and loyal customer,” says Barry Feld, CEO of Cost Plus World Market.

The official store grand opening celebration begins on Thursday, August 20, 2015 at 8:00 am. The first 100 customers through the doors from Thursday, August 20 through Sunday, August 23, 2015 will receive a reusable canvas tote bag, and each day 10 totes will contain one $50 World Market gift card, which can be used in store and online at Live entertainment featuring students and alumni of The Juilliard School will take place Thursday through Sunday from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. During grand opening weekend only, shoppers will receive a 20% discount on all purchases made in the Chelsea store. More information about the Chelsea store opening and store hours can be found at
