This nearly 40-year-old manufacturer and online retailer of swimming and running gear has just opened its very first retail location at Roosevelt Field mall in Garden City.
The doors at TYR Sport opened Friday.
“The launch of our first retail location is a monumental moment for us,” said Matt DiLorenzo, the company’s CEO. “We are excited to provide a space for meaningful engagement with our brand. Venturing into brick-and-mortar retail showcases our commitment to broaden the TYR community.”
TYR Sport is also opening another store in Costa Mesa, Calif., next month.
The retail space at Roosevelt Field is being billed as an interactive hub for exercise enthusiasts.
According to an announcement, visitors to TYR Sport “can explore the latest in performance footwear, innovative fitness apparel, and on-trend accessories, all backed by TYR’s unwavering commitment to quality.”
“We are thrilled to officially welcome TYR, a brand synonymous with cutting-edge fitness and swim gear, to Roosevelt Field’s esteemed roster of top brands in the category — joining the likes of Lululemon, Adidas, Travis Mathew, Oakley, and Dick’s Sporting Goods,” said Zachary Beloff, of Simon Property Group, which owns the mall. “This exciting opening is part of our commitment to bringing a wider variety of unique, high-quality and exciting brands to the Long Island community.”
