Flying Tiger Copenhagen is opening its first Long Island store on Friday at the Gallery at Westbury Plaza.
The new 3,852-square-foot store, on 900 Old Country Rd. in Garden City, will be the Danish retailer’s first shopping mall center outpost and first store outside of Manhattan. The store will employ 16 people.
Flying Tiger stores carry Danish-designed products ranging from gadgets, toys and games to home and office supplies, among other items. The chain is known for adding new seasonal items to the store every two weeks.
Founded in Copenhagen in 1995, Flying Tiger Copenhagen has more than 600 locations in 28 countries. The chain launched in the U.S. with a store in Manhattan’s flatiron district in May 2015 and opened a second location on the Upper East Side earlier this year.
