Anthropologie Opens At Whitman Mall

The trendy home and clothing store opens a third Long Island location in Huntington Station.

Last Friday marked the opening of the newest addition to the Walt Whitman Shops — Anthropologie.

Known as a lifestyle store, the mall's most modern location offers a variety of items including clothes, shoes, accessories, books and home decor.

Sporting one of the larger storefronts at , the new store is easily distinguishable with its modern window display and ceiling-high green wall showing the store's name. The inside is full, but spacious as well.

First opened in Wayne, Penn., in 1992, the franchise has expanded to hundreds of locations throughout the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom, according to the company's website

Other Long Island locations include Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City and in Greenvale on Northern Boulevard.

Since opening in Huntington Station June 22, the store has received lots of traffic, according to a store manager.

Store hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and on Sunday from 11 a.m to 7 p.m. 

on a mall renovation project that will eventually introduce 11 new stores and restaurants encompassing a total of 72,000 square feet of additional retail space at the mall, owned by the Indianapolis-based Simon Property Group.

The mall project is expected to be completed in 2013.

I'd love for them to open a record store and issue an "apologie" for ruining the mall. But then my alarm clock went off...

We do not need high end stores that very few can afford.... The rich can go or send their live in help to manhassett.... We need tower and barnes and noble and cheap accessory stores ( which also left the 'Walt Whitman Shoppes' as they now want to be called.). Such an example of Not catering to the PUBLIC but rather just the rich,..... People who work there told me they can't afford to shop at any of the stores there ... Sad and disturbing

I used to shop at the mall. Most of the stores had things i did not like it. The prices were higher sears or kohls. It has been a long time since i shopped thier. Traffic was terrible and accidents. Laura

I have visited this store now that it is open. It's full of stuff with a "shabby chic" bohemian vibe which really isn't my taste. I did buy a coffee mug for $6.00 as a gift which wasn't too bad but I have no plans of shopping there again in the near future.
