Arc´teryx opened its first hybrid retail location in New York City last Saturday, featuring a ReBird™ Service Center and product assessment, along with in-store care and educational help.
The techwear specialist stated that it’s an opportunity for people to see what happens behind the scenes and learn about product care. The new store features a thoughtfully curated collection of Arc’teryx technical gear and ReBird™ Sales hub, along with one-of-a-kind refurbished used garments and ReBird items made of upcycled materials.
At the new store, you’ll be able to find shells, insulated jackets, mid-layers, pants and so much more.
Arc’teryx Broadway Store will also function as a Service Center where customers will be able to repair their garments, learn about product care and get assessment. The services will include GORE-TEX leak testing, in-house technical wash, renewal of face fabric Durable Water Repellent and buckle replacement, among others.
Although this is the brand’s sixth location in the New York City area, it’s the first one of its kind. The Service Center is part of the ReBird™ program, Arc’teryx initiative to adopt and evolve circular and upcycling practices, as well as share their commitment to sustainability with the community.
The ReBird™ program also contributes to the brand’s Science-Based Targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 65% by 2030.
“Building gear that lasts is the first step to reducing our environmental impact. The ReBird Service Center is an exciting new opportunity for our guests to extend the use of their gear and get a taste of the Arc’teryx manufacturing experience”, said Katie Wilson, Senior Manager Social & Environmental Sustainability at Arc’teryx.
Arc’teryx Broadway Store will also hold events for the community that will begin in the following weeks. Moreover, the brand announced that they have plans to open more hybrid stores like this one in 2022 in the US and Canada too.
