Brooks Brothers to open First Staten Island at Empire Outlets

Published 22 May 2018

Brooks Brothers, an American apparel retailer, will open a new location at Empire Outlets, a retail outlet center in New York City.

The new Brooks Brothers outlet scheduled to open in Fall 2018 will be the company's first Staten Island location, situated alongside 100 other designer retailers and dozens of food and beverage options.

Steps from the Staten Island Ferry, Empire Outlets is expected to draw millions of New York City residents and tourists each year.

The 4,040-square-foot Brooks Brothers outlet will carry the upcoming Fall/Winter 2018 collection of tailored clothing, casual wear, outerwear and accessories for men, women and children making it a natural addition to Empire Outlets' diverse and dynamic retail lineup.

From its humble beginnings in New York City at 116 Cherry Street to its position today as a global purveyor of American style, Brooks Brothers has continued to influence and innovate fashion. 

Brooks Brothers was the first to offer ready-to-wear clothing, introduced seersucker and madras to the American market, and created one of the most enduring and popular items: the iconic button-down collar shirt.

Empire Outlets developer and BFC Partners principal Joseph Ferrara said: "Brooks Brothers is engrained in the very fabric of American retail and style.

"Bringing on a historic and peerless brand like Brooks Brothers is just another step toward making Empire Outlets one of New York City's top shopping and dining destinations."

Casandra Properties vice president and CEO James Prendamano said: "Successfully negotiating Brooks Brothers lease at Empire Outlets is one of the proudest moments of my career.

"A two hundred year tradition of excellence in men's clothing has made Brooks Brothers one of the most sought after apparel brands in the world. This truly is a legendary addition to the growing Empire."

Located adjacent to the St. George Ferry Terminal, Empire Outlets will feature over 100 designer outlet retailers and a 1,250-space parking garage.

Major retailers at the center include H&M, Banana Republic, Nordstrom Rack, Gap Factory and Columbia Sporting Goods, among others. Eateries are also flocking to Empire Outlets' 40,000-square-foot food and beverage deck, which will provide unique views of Manhattan and an unmatched experience for visitors.

Restaurants at the center include Shake Shack, Artichoke Basille's Pizza and MRKTPL, Staten Island's first-ever artisanal food hall.

The vast majority of Empire Outlets' retail and restaurant spaces are already leased and BFC Partners is actively in discussions with several prominent tenants for the balance of the lifestyle center.

Empire Outlets is expected to open in Fall 2018.
