DownEast Home & Clothing to Open in Gilbert

Already a popular name in clothing, retailer expands its presence in Arizona with home furnishings side of business – new store in San Tan Shopping Center.

Gilbert, AZ (PRWEB) January 15, 2013

High-style, low-price retailer DownEast announced today it is opening a DownEast Home & Clothing store in Gilbert, in the San Tan Shopping Center. While the location marks the seventh DownEast store in the state, and the sixth in metro Phoenix, it will be the first here to carry home furnishings and décor in addition to the company's highly popular clothing lines. The new store will open January 18.

Along with its own private-label furniture, DownEast Home & Clothing will offer home furnishings from some of the top national brands – at a remarkable 40 to 90 percent off retail. The store will also carry the DownEast Basics line of high-design yet budget friendly clothing for women, teens and girls, as well as popular other national clothing brands for women, men and children at well below retail pricing.

To celebrate the new store, DownEast will host an official grand opening event – giving shoppers a chance to enter a “Shopping's More Fun With Your Friends” giveaway.

“The DownEast Home & Clothing concept that has been so successful for us in Utah and Idaho is now coming to Arizona,” said Klane Murphy, CEO at DownEast. “It made sense to open one of our combination home and clothing stores in the metro Phoenix area where we are already well established. Consumer demand for our clothing here certainly led to our decision to introduce our home furnishings line, as well. We're very happy to again expand our footprint in the state.”

Other DownEast apparel stores are located in Chandler, Glendale, Mesa, Tempe and Tucson. In business for over twenty years, the company is known for its philosophy of delivering style and quality at prices shoppers can truly afford.

DownEast Offers “Shopping's More Fun with Your Friends” Giveaway

To celebrate the new opening, DownEast is offering a chance to enter a “Shopping's More Fun with Your Friends” giveaway from Friday, January 25, to Friday, February 8, 2013. Customers can register for the giveaway at the new DownEast Home & Clothing store in the San Tan Shopping Center in Gilbert.
