Pier 1 imports opens in Conyers

Pier 1 Imports announces the opening of its newest store in Conyers, located at 1486 Dogwood Drive in Conyers Crossroads.

The store, a 7,900-square-foot space, officially opened June 17. The first 200 customers to visit the store each day through June 23 will each receive a free reusable bag and a Pier 1 Imports backscratcher in celebration of the new store opening.

"We are pleased to bring this new Pier 1 Imports to Conyers and hope that our new location will inspire customers to discover the eclectic and fun merchandise that is unique to Pier 1 Imports," said Alex W. Smith, president and chief executive officer of Pier 1 Imports, in a press release.

"Pier 1 Imports offers merchandise that fits all decorating styles, as well as a broad array of affordable holiday decor, furniture and gifts, and we look forward to sharing our unique shopping experience with the residents of Conyers and the surrounding area.

This is the 28th Pier 1 Imports location in Georgia, and it will feature the new store concept. The new store design is a natural evolution of the Pier 1 Imports experience that utilizes a new interior finish-out, including natural-colored floor tiles, rustic ceiling elements, enhanced store lighting and lit shelving units lining the walls, all of which help customers visualize the end-use of the products within their own home.

The new look is complemented by the use of "open stock" merchandising, designed to enhance the shopping environment by giving customers the opportunity to see, feel and interact with the product. The exterior design features bamboo window awnings and a signature bamboo door with rustic metal door handles that will mark the entrance to Pier 1 Imports' shopping experience.

The features of the new store will allow easier navigation, all while maintaining the "treasure hunt" feel and continuing to make Pier 1 Imports conducive to browsing.

On average, the store will employ approximately 12 to 15 associates throughout the year. Associate hours fluctuate based on the needs of the business and the season.

Pier 1 Imports is a global importer of imported decorative home furnishings and gifts. Information about the company is available on www.pier1.com.
