77kids by american eagle, the kids fashion brand from American Eagle Outfitters, Inc., opens its first-ever Manhattan location. The aptly named "77kids NYC Style Lab" occupies the entire lower level in American Eagle Outfitters' celebrated Times Square flagship at 1551 Broadway.

"77kids at American Eagle Outfitters in Times Square continues our tradition of giving customers something completely new and unexpected," said Jim O'Donnell, chief executive officer, American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. "This is not retail-as-usual.

From the assortment to the creative and entertaining activities, 77kids at Times Square is changing what it means to go shopping."

The two million New Yorkers and tourists who visit Times Square daily will be treated to a one-of-a-kind experience that epitomizes the 77kids mantra, "Long Live Fun." The store features a high-tech, interactive environment with a music theme throughout, not to mention free goodies.

The 77kids assortment outfits boys and girls up to size 14 with on-trend denim, fashion-forward separates, graphic tees, colorful hoodies and accessories. New York City-exclusive items are available, as well as edgier options such as cropped moto jackets. The Manhattan location also carries little77(R), a line of clothing and accessories for newborns to babies up to 18 months.

"We want 77kids to be the latest must-visit destination in Times Square," said Betsy Schumacher, chief merchandising officer, 77kids by american eagle. "This is a place where both kids and parents can have a blast and get great fashion."
