LUSH Moves On Up To The (Upper) East Side
LUSH Cosmetics, the popular brand that touts their “fresh handmade cosmetics” and high-quality vegetarian face, hair, and body products has opened up another location on the Upper East Side (UES) at Third Avenue and 86th Street. The company has experienced a massive growth over the last two years, opening 75 shops (35 during this fiscal year). The UES location is the first new store in New York City since 2007. Other locations are in Union Square, SoHo, Herald Square, and the Upper West Side.
“This new shop on the Upper East Side will be our fifth location in New York, but the first location in this high-end neighborhood, conveniently located near public transit and a bustling retail scene. LUSH will bring a new kind of shopping experience to customers in this community by rewarding them with offerings like facials, sampling, consultations and demos,” said Mark Wolverton, CEO and president of LUSH North America. “This location aims to increase our presence within the New York market, offering yet another convenient location for the savvy NYC consumer,” he added.
Born out of England, and now based in Vancouver, Canada, LUSH Cosmetics believes in having their store be interactive with customers, encouraging them to choose their cosmetics personally. Many of the LUSH sales assistants work really hard with customers to figure out which of their products will benefit them—body and soul. LUSH Cosmetics welcomes loyal customers and potential clients to experience their fresh cleansing rolls at the skin care bar, the piles of fragrant bath bombs, bars of solid shampoo, or the fresh face masks displayed on ice. The brand wants the customers to interact with their products, so they display them in a way where they can smell and touch them. No day at LUSH Cosmetics is complete without sampling and enthusiastic product demos.
Not only has the brand opened new stores, revamped existing locations, and churned out 100+ products a year, they’ve made a healthy profit, retained employees, and kept customers happy. LUSH Cosmetics is also popping up in Portland, Maine; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Miami and Jacksonville, Florida; Indianapolis, Indiana; and Charleston, South Carolina.
