YAY! Ricky’s NYC is opening new locations nationwide! I know it will be a good long while for Oklahoma to get one, but Texas is getting one soon! It almost sounds like a Sephora with some same and some different brands, but with the retail model of ULTA.
“Ricky’s is King of beauty & haircare in NYC, Ricky’s NYC, the iconic, edgy, ultra-hip beauty emporium, is expanding into national malls and lifestyle centers with a new prototype. Bringing their eclectic, high end & hard to find beauty offerings to a national level, they are poised to become the one stop beauty paradise New Yorkers know and love for consumers across the country.
The first prototype location has just opened on 87th Street and Broadway in New York City and features an extensive perfume bar as well as a wide assortment of prestige skincare and makeup lines, including Murad, REN, Skyn Iceland, Smashbox, Stila & Too Faced Cosmetics. The brand’s hip Revolver Salon will be a part of each new store, offering top salon services at the hands of experienced talent for a fraction of the cost of high-end salons.
The national expansion of Ricky’s NYC will start off this year with 2-3 new stores, and a proposed 20 new locations for 2012. The first locations outside of NY will be in California, Florida and Texas.”
