Nike has opened its first New York Community Store, located on the intersection of Nostrand and Flatbush Avenues. As with all Nike Community Stores, forging ties to the local community is integral, an initiative supported by a hiring policy that mandates that at least 80 percent of store employees must be enlisted through local channels and from within a five-mile radius of the store. Additionally, the team will volunteer their time to local non-profit organizations. The physical space features design elements and products that reflect the heritage of the surrounding neighborhood, which means the existing brick and iron/metal work of the building were kept and restored, and Brooklyn imagery shot by local photographer Anthony Blasko is displayed throughout. In addition to Nike running, training, basketball and sportswear products for women, men and young athletes, there will also be Brooklyn-specific products only available at the store, as well as gear from local sports teams. Be sure to check it out if you’re in the area.
