New Partners Celebrate Exclusive Handsewn Collection and New York Pop-Up Shop
Stratham, NH – August 26, 2009 – The Timberland Company and Saks Fifth Avenue are proud to announce the introduction of Timberland® footwear at select Saks Fifth Avenue stores nationwide. Beginning in September, Saks Fifth Avenue will offer premium Timberland® footwear – including a line of handsewn boat shoes exclusive to Saks and the latest styles from the Timberland Boot Company™ and Abington collections – at its retail locations in New York City, Boston, Chicago, Tyson’s Corner (McLean, Virginia), Troy (Michigan) and San Francisco.
To celebrate this new partnership, Timberland will launch a pop-up shop at the Saks Fifth Avenue flagship store featuring the modern collections. It will be unveiled on September 9th in celebration of New York City’s “Fashion’s Night Out,” a city-wide shopping event on September 10th to support local retailers across New York. To share and honor the craftsmanship behind Timberland® footwear, a handsewer from the company’s Dominican Republic factory – where all Timberland® handsewns are made – will be on-site during “Fashion’s Night Out” on the afternoon and evening of Thursday, September 10th and also on Saturday afternoon, September 12th to demonstrate the art of building a premium shoe. The shop, located on the 7th floor, will be open from September 9th – September 20th.
