Kiehl’s Opens First Virginia Store At Tysons Corner Center

Kiehl’s Since 1851, the venerable New York-based purveyor of fine quality skin and hair care preparations, has openned its very first free-standing store in Virginia, at Tysons Corner Center. In its 161st year of service, Kiehl’s is proud to bring its skin care to Northern Virginia, offering its residents the opportunity to discover Kiehl’s efficacious skin, hair and body care products, personalized customer service, and 161-year-old heritage through the complete Kiehl’s experience.
Kiehl’s will celebrate on April 24 from 5-8 pm with a grand opening party. NewsBabes, the breast cancer charity founded by local anchorwomen, will be the beneficiary of the evening’s celebration. Philanthropic support is a cornerstone of the Kiehl’s philosophy. The night will include Georgetown Cupcakes, Kiehl’s product gift bags for the first 100 attendees and more.
“We are extremely excited to bring New York and the full Kiehl’s retail experience to Tysons Corner, and by doing so, introducing Kiehl’s to a whole new state, as this is our very first store in Virginia” said Chris Salgardo, President, Kiehl’s USA. “There’s nothing Kiehl’s values more than our New York heritage, and each element of our new store, from the design of the fixtures to the historical photographs, mementos and Kiehl’s icons, is meant to help tell the full story of the unique company that began as an old-world apothecary at the corner of 13th Street and Third Avenue in New York’s East Village. We’re delighted to give Northern Virginia its own opportunity to discover Kiehl’s heritage and history, our philanthropic mission, our sampling and service-oriented approach to retail, and of course, our full line of skin, hair and body care for women, men, children, and even dogs and horses.”

Kiehl’s Tysons Corner mirrors the unique ambiance found in the company’s original New York Flagship, which began as a neighborhood apothecary in 1851. The new store brings a modern New York apothecary to Virginia, referencing the company’s original East Village roots and blending vintage and antique apothecary fixtures with a modern neon flare. The interior design advances Kiehl’s longtime commitment to the environment ¬with the use of natural, sustainable materials and energy-efficient light fixtures, while enhancing the overall service experience for Kiehl’s patrons.

Kiehl’s Tysons Corner continues the company’s commitment to superior customer service through its traditional practices:

• Kiehl’s commitment to environmental responsibility and Recycle and Be Rewarded! Kiehl’s Tysons Corner utilizes natural, sustainable materials and energy efficient light fixtures – and encourages patrons to recycle Kiehl’s packaging with a specially designed recycling bin, promoted through Kiehl’s Recycle and Be Rewarded! program. Recycle and Be Rewarded! offers customers the opportunity to return empty Kiehl’s bottles and tubes to the store for recycling, in exchange for complimentary products.

• Kiehl’s commitment to education through attentive service is accentuated through a dedicated personal consultation area. The enhanced space provides an opportunity for customer representatives and patrons to converse privately about products best suited for the customer’s individual needs. A separate Men’s Destination offers specialized education tailored to the specific concerns of male patrons. All customers receive the kind of attentive service for which Kiehl’s is known around the world today.
