New York City to celebrate 'Burberry Day' on May 28
27
May '09
Burberry is pleased to announce that Thursday 28 May has been declared Burberry Day in New York City.

The proclamation, by New York City's Mayor Bloomberg, is in honour of the continued investment and commitment Burberry makes to New York and the US and coincides with the official lighting of the Burberry logo on the rooftop of the new Burberry Americas headquarters at 444 Madison Avenue. The site at 444 Madison Avenue is one of only six grand fathered signage locations in New York.

The fifty foot long Burberry logos will be lit across the iconic Manhattan skyline for the first time this Thursday evening, during an event to celebrate the occasion being hosted by Burberry Chief Executive Angela Ahrendts and Burberry Creative Director Christopher Bailey for over 300 guests.

The new 68,000 square foot Burberry Americas headquarters at 444 Madison Avenue opened in April 2009 and mirror the 160,000 square foot Burberry global headquarters in London. Both headquarters, designed by Burberry Creative Director Christopher Bailey, capture the quintessential British values which Burberry represents and feature modern contemporary office space and cutting edge show rooms.

To further celebrate Burberry Day, 20% of all purchases made in Burberry New York stores at 57th Street and Spring Street in SoHo on the day will be donated to The Burberry Foundation.

The Burberry Foundation is committed to dedicating global resources to help young people realise their dreams and achieve their potential through the power of their creativity. The Burberry Foundation invests in select charities focused on supporting young people in the key cities in regions where the majority of Burberry employees live and work, and where they are able to participate in volunteer roles with Burberry Foundation charity partners on the ground.

Burberry currently has two stores in Manhattan and today announces plans to double this figure with two brand new 1600 square foot stores either side of the new Burberry Americas Headquarters at 444 Madison Avenue. The new stores will open at the end of October this year.
