    Disney Store Announces 2011 Multi-National Store Opening Slate

    Disney Store's Innovative New Design to Open in
    Canada, Puerto Rico and New International Markets

    PASADENA, Calif. – January 11, 2011 – Disney Store continues to break ground with plans to unveil its innovative concept store in new North American and international markets. Building on the successful launch of its interactive and immersive stores in 2010, the international specialty retail chain is on target to add more than 25 new and remodeled locations in 2011 ultimately transforming all 350+ locations in countries around the world. Today at the National Retail Federation's "Big Show" in New York City, Disney Store announced the first 11 North American and 10 European locations, and plans to reveal additional locations later this year. With a retail strategy focused on securing locations in premier mall and shopping centers, Disney Store is in prime position to deliver "the best 30 minutes of a child's day" to the more than 85 million children, families and tourists who visit it each year.

    "Guests told us that we brought the magic back to Disney Store with the launch of our new design and responded by staying in the stores longer and purchasing more," said Jim Fielding, president of Disney Stores Worldwide. "The future of Disney Store is brighter than ever as we expand our reach by opening in new markets, leverage the latest technology to enhance the guest experience and improve efficiency, showcase incredible new Disney content, and bring a magical Disney experience to local communities everywhere."
    In 2011, Disney Store will open newly designed stores in six new North American markets and in three new European countries:

    Disney Store Locations: US, Canada & Puerto Rico

    The first newly designed Disney Store in Georgia will open in Atlanta's Perimeter Mall
    Guests in Washington will celebrate the opening of two Disney Store locations in Seattle's Westfield Southcenter mall and at Bellevue Square

    For the first time in 10 years, Puerto Rico will have its very own Disney Store when an experiential new store opens at Plaza Las Americas this summer
    The first newly designed Disney Store in Canada will open in the remodeled Square One Mall in Mississauga, Ontario and Metropolis in Vancouver, British Columbia will also open an inaugural store.

    It would be nice to have a store in our area again, we must travel east an hour and half to an area I have never been to in order to shop a Disney store, needless to say I have never been and most likely will not go.
