Canadian brand announces opening of Pinnacle US retail store in iconic NYC location, with focus on leading design innovation in the outdoors
22 DECEMBER 2022 /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – This week, Arc’teryx, the Canadian high-performance mountain gear and apparel brand, opened a Pinnacle Store in Flatiron, NYC. Drawing on Arc’teryx’s commitment to premium, performance-led design, and the Flatiron community’s design heritage, the new store marks the highest global retail expression for the brand.
Occupying 6,600 square feet in the heart of the vibrant Flatiron design district, the new store is one of the brand’s biggest in North America. In addition to a wide array of Arc’teryx’s main line products, the store will also feature Veilance and System_A collections – representing outdoor gear for the city environment, and disruptive next-generation outdoor apparel, respectively.
“The new Flatiron Pinnacle Store opening marks an exciting new chapter for Arc’teryx’s retail journey,” said Delaney Schweitzer, Chief Commercial Officer. “2022 saw 10 Arc’teryx store openings, renovations, and relocations across North America. Next year, we’re looking to expand our direct-to-consumer footprint further with 15 new store openings. This is a key step in our journey to connect with our guests in a meaningful and personalised way, tailoring the way we show up in markets across the world to offer the highest level of service and share our love for the mountains.”
The decision to open an Arc’teryx brand store in the Flatiron district was a strategic choice, representing the brand’s commitment to design, craftsmanship, and desire to be embedded in the city’s design community. Inspired by the unique challenges faced by mountain athletes, Arc’teryx apparel and equipment is designed to solve real problems for mountain athletes. Inventor of game-changing mountain innovations including the WaterTight Zipper™, Articulated Fit and StormHood™, the brand’s revolutionary designs appeal far beyond its Canadian Coast Mountain home.
“Arc’teryx has always had an unwavering commitment to design perfection,” said Katie Becker, Chief Creative Officer, “and strives to deliver product that’s authentic, beautiful, functional, and responsible. We use design to question the status quo, and to create products of genuine value, that deliver in the most extreme conditions. Our presence in Flatiron aligns with the area’s rich design heritage, creating a space to share design insights and inspiration with a like minded community. We will use this space to glean insights and hear needs of the community directly. We’re looking forward to connecting and co-creating with the community, sharing design inspiration, and growing ever deeper creative roots in New York.”
