Lifestyle retailer Sundance has made its debut in the Northeast with a 3,920-square foot store at 97 Main Street in downtown Westport, Connecticut. The lease was originally announced by landlord Empire State Realty Trust (ESRT) in 2019.
Sundance Catalog was founded in 1989 by actor, environmentalist, director and independent filmmaking visionary Robert Redford, to promote the works of artists and craftspeople from across the country and around the world. Now with 19 stores around the country, Sundance offers a mix of unique women’s and men’s apparel and footwear, jewelry, accessories, art and home décor.
“The Westport opening marks the first Sundance store in the Northeast and in the greater tri-state area. The team and I are very excited to make our debut in the region with the downtown Westport location, a natural and clear choice for Sundance,” said Matey Erdos, Sundance CEO. “Our loyal customers in the surrounding area have participated in the Sundance lifestyle for years through our beautiful catalog. Bringing the authentic Sundance experience from Utah to Connecticut is an absolute thrill for us.”
“Our retail space at 97 Main Street offers a prime location in one of Connecticut’s most affluent shopping districts,” said Anthony E. Malkin, ESRT chairman, president, and CEO. “We welcome Sundance and its future visitors to our Westport waterfront property.”
A formal grand opening event with a ribbon-cutting and charity events, is planned for the fall.
