Bloomingdale’s and Space NK Announce Partnership

    Specialty Beauty Apothecary to Open in Select Bloomingdale's



    NEW YORK, July 25 /EMWPresswire/ -- Bloomingdale's and Space NK have

agreed to an exclusive multi-year arrangement to open beauty boutiques in

nine Bloomingdale's locations across the country beginning in November. The

British based retail phenomenon, founded by Belfast-born, Nicky Kinnaird,

is best known for its innovative approach, exceptional service and highly

edited selection of the most coveted and craved beauty items sourced by

Kinnaird herself.



    "This is a powerful partnership of two brands that believe in the

importance of accessible luxury," said Michael Gould, Chairman and CEO of

Bloomingdale's. "Together, we can offer the Bloomingdale's customer a

unique shopping experience and access to top beauty brands from all over

the world."



    "Space NK is based on a vision of my personal dream store," says Nicky

Kinnaird, Founder and Creative Director. "I wanted to create an experience

that would impress me as a customer, delight, educate, and surprise me. Our

partnership with Bloomingdale's will give us increased accessibility and

allow us to introduce the Space NK concept to a wider audience."



    Locations slated for Bloomingdale's include the Flagship 59th Street

store as well as Soho and White Plains, NY; Chestnut Hill, MA; Sherman

Oaks, Newport Beach, South Coast Plaza, Century City, and San Francisco,

CA. The square footage of each shop will range from 750 and 1,000 square

feet.



    The boutiques will mirror the design and feel of existing Space NK

locations, offering a hand-selected mix of beauty brands created by

innovators and experts in their fields. Each location will be staffed, in

true Space NK style, with highly knowledgeable, unbiased skincare experts

and make-up artists, who can advise each customer about their specific

beauty needs and prescribe personalized solutions across multiple brands.

Space NK signature elements such as clean modern design, bright lighting

and an open, inviting atmosphere will be replicated inside Bloomingdale's.



    Over the past 15 years, word-of-mouth buzz has built awareness of the

Space NK brand within trans-Atlantic circles. A stop at one of the London

shops is a regular event for the most recognized faces in London who rely

on Kinnaird and her staff for their unbiased opinions on some of the best

skincare, makeup, hair care, fragrance and body care available.



    Space NK is an innovative beauty retailer committed to offering a

well-informed, unbiased opinion on an edited selection of the best

specialist skincare, make-up, fragrance, toiletries and accessories within

an environment that is lively, upbeat and informal. Space NK continually

aims to deliver the highest possible level of customer care, treating

shoppers as individuals and offering product choices in a language that

customers can understand. Space NK currently operates 58 stores throughout

the United Kingdom and 4 in the United States.



    Bloomingdale's is America's only nationwide, full-line, upscale

department store; and a division of Macy's, Inc. It was founded in 1872 and

currently operates 40 stores in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts,

Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Illinois, Minnesota, Georgia, Florida,
