Newark, New Jersey: Nike will open a retail location in Downtown Newark. According to reports, Newark's Nike Factory Store will operate within the new Shoppes on Broad development, which is located opposite Military Park at 697-705 Broad Street. The development is part of the new Prudential Tower complex.
This will be the first location in Essex County for the Beaverton, Oregon-based international retailer, though the company does operate a Nike Factory Store at The Mills at Jersey Gardens in neighboring Elizabeth, Union County. The Newark store is currently in the progress of being certified by the U.S. Green Building Council, and has announced that it is hiring full time and part time employees.
The store will hold a grand opening event on Thursday, October 1st, according to signs posted outside the store.
Blaze Pizza also recently announced that it will open a location in the development, and other retailers are expected to open there in the near future.
Nike officials did not respond to requests for comment.
