Salt Lake City-based Sundance, a multi-channel direct marketer and specialty retailer of apparel and accessories, jewelry and home furnishings, has announced the opening of its newest retail location in the University Village in Seattle, Washington.
There will be a grand opening weekend celebration starting today, with a ribbon-cutting at 4 p.m. The University Village store, at 2643 N.E. University Village St., #D-33, Seattle, is located in the city's only outdoor lifestyle shopping center.
"We are absolutely thrilled to be opening our newest store in Seattle's University Village,” said Matey Erdos, CEO. “This beautiful, vibrant, and dynamic area is rich in culture, artistic expression, and natural beauty; attributes that are quite aligned with the values of Sundance."
"The Seattle store is a spectacular location that brings the beauty and authenticity of the Sundance lifestyle to life. We have created an experience that is not commonly found in the marketplace, an experience that is aspirational and artistic, guided by a strong sense of discovery, storytelling, and conversation. The store is thoughtfully curated with the exclusive and quality product the brand is known for. By offering a distinctive shopping experience, one that is true to the brand, we are confident our loyal supporters will make it a great success," added Erdos.
Following the vision of Sundance Catalog founder, acclaimed actor, director, and visionary Robert Redford, the company holds a strong commitment to nurturing diversity in artistic expression to the artist community. The Sundance Catalog will donate a portion of the proceeds from the grand opening weekend to Coyote Central, a non-profit that provides art workshops for youth.
"Over the past 30 years, Coyote Central has connected 20,000 young people with Seattle's rich community of artists and artisans, and we are honored to partner with Sundance Catalog as it brings new artists to the Seattle area," said Claudia Stelle, executive director of Coyote Central.
