As the major redevelopment of Garden City, NY, Roosevelt Field enters its final stages, Simon, a global leader in retail real estate, announced the names of a group of unique, high-quality brands that will be part of a brand-new, two-level retail wing. Most of the stores, with some welcoming customers as soon as this week, will make their Long Island debut in this exclusive wing that will lead to the area's first Neiman Marcus store opening in February 2016.

The new retailers announced include Le Pain Quotidien, which is opening in November. Le Pain Quotidien, which means the daily bread, is a popular European cafe chain that serves bakery goods, healthful salads, handmade breads and organic drinks.  Roosevelt Field shoppers will enjoy its offerings when it opens its first Long Island location, a 2,393 square-foot cafe.

A majority of the additions will open this fall, with the remaining stores slated for early 2016. 

"These retailers will help create a collection of brands that celebrate the best of American and international heritage, giving our customers a diverse and in most instances exclusive opportunity to shop concepts that are firsts for Long Island," commented Francis X. Scire, Simon vice president of leasing. "We are pleased to bring these brands to our Roosevelt Field consumers and further the center's reputation as the premier shopping destination on Long Island."
