Bloomingdale's to introduce the Space NK concept

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, Nevada and California.
