Century Love Story – Eddie Gindi:
I celebrated my 35th anniversary with Century 21 this year. That is 35 years of family, love and community…and I am so proud of it!
For 53 years, Century 21 department stores have helped define New York City for many people. We opened our first store in the Financial District in 1961. Committed to delivering value so people may live better, Sonny and Al Gindi opened our flagship location at the corner of Broadway and Cortlandt Street – now a New York City landmark and anchor to the burgeoning Lower Manhattan Fashion District – offering guests, “up to 65% off retail 100% of the time.”
The store, the family and our commitment to delivering value so people may live better still stand.
I, along with my partners Raymond, I.G. and Isaac Gindi, own Century 21 department stores. We now stand eight stores strong, with our ninth opening in Philadelphia this fall. We have also brought together a community of talented individuals, 5,000 strong, with diverse backgrounds and viewpoints to help us become the boutique of the off-price retail industry. Our community is growing.
It is our community, within and beyond the walls of Century 21, that has allowed us to flourish, even in the face of adversity. We are survivors, along with all other New Yorkers who experienced that Tuesday on September 11th, 2001.
Destroyed by the attacks of 9/11, our flagship location rose from the rubble after just six months. We stayed. We persevered. We remained committed to New York City – to who we are.
Our partnership with Tuesday’s Children was a natural evolution of our commitment to this community. Tuesday’s Children was founded to promote long-term healing by those directly impacted on 9/11. This wonderful charity’s mission today is to keep the promise to those children and families while serving and supporting communities affected by terror worldwide.
We needed a way to give back because we had been given so much. Worldwide, communities needed us.
An emotional tour of the 9/11 Memorial and our learning of the lone Callery pear tree standing amongst 500 oaks – saved by the heroes of 9/11 – inspired my band, Men in MY Head, and me to write “Survivor Tree.”
We succeeded in raising $275,000 for Tuesday’s Children through in-store sales, online and live performances last year. This year, we are back and committed to doing even more with our newest single, “Century Love.”
In collaboration with 50 Cent, through music our hearts again beat as one in support of the City of New York, terror victims and the work of Tuesday’s Children.
Our memories – centuries of them – survive and thrive in the city we built and rebuilt.
Our love – centuries of it – transcends adversity and gives us a resilient, soulful spirit
Our future – centuries more – lives in you.
With respect and gratitude, we support the efforts of Tuesday’s Children and the opportunity to drive change for centuries more.
