Birchbox Opens First Brick-and-Mortar Store in NYC

Birchbox (www.birchbox.com), a leading beauty ecommerce company, opened its first brick-and-mortar store in Manhattan. The Birchbox store leverages the insights and feedback gathered since the company's launch in 2010 from its more than 800,000 active subscribers to create a customer-first, holistic offline shopping experience.

The Birchbox store experience includes:

· Curated product assortment featuring 2,000 products from 250 brands including Smashbox, Caudalie, Jouer, Supergoop!, Cynthia Rowley, Baxter of California, Lab Series, and Art of Shaving. Testers of every product in the store will be available.
·

A vertical merchandising strategy that allows consumers to shop by category instead of by brand. For example, a shopper could come in looking for a red lipstick and compare different types in the 'makeup' section of the store.

· A dedicated B.Y.O.B. - Build Your Own Birchbox - section where shoppers can hand-pick five sample size products of their choice for $15 USD.
·
Editorial content, videos and product reviews throughout the shop to help customers learn and self-navigate.
·
A "Try Bar" where customers can experiment with different beauty trends and find the products that are right for them.
·
Beauty services available by appointment (and for walk-ins when available) for hair, nails and makeup.
·


Group classes will be offered on a variety of topics. Classes are designed to appeal to all types of beauty consumers and allow them to sample, try and learn about the products. Classes will be free for Birchbox subscribers and $30 for non-subscribers.
