Pier 1 opens store in Port Chester

Fort Worth, Texas-based Pier 1 Imports opened a Port Chester store this week, promising 12 to 15 jobs and a new store design.
The 9,871-square-foot space is at 427 Boston Post Road in the Port Chester Shopping Center.
The store officially opened April 8. The first 200 customers each day through April 14 will each receive a free reusable bag and a Pier 1 Imports backscratcher. The company operates some 1,000 stores throughout North America and Puerto Rico.
“We are pleased to bring this new Pier 1 Imports to Port Chester and hope that our new location will inspire customers to discover the eclectic and fun merchandise that is unique to Pier 1 Imports,” said Alex W. Smith, president/CEO of Pier 1 Imports. “Pier 1 Imports offers merchandise that fits all decorating styles, as well as a broad array of affordable holiday décor, furniture and gifts, and we look forward to sharing our unique shopping experience with the residents of Port Chester and the surrounding area.”
On average, the store will employ about 12 to15 associates throughout the year. Associate hours fluctuate based on the needs of the business and the season, Pier 1 officals said in the announcement
This is the 49th Pier 1 location in New York, and it will feature a new layout.
Pier 1 Imports rolled out its new store concept in fall 2011. The design is “a natural evolution of the Pier 1 Imports experience that utilizes a new interior finish-out, including natural-colored floor tiles, rustic ceiling elements, enhanced store lighting and lit shelving units lining the walls, all of which help customers visualize the end use of the products within their own home.” The features of the new store should allow easier navigation while maintaining the “treasure hunt” feel touted by Pier 1.
