First Safavieh Express Concept Store Opens at Stamford Town Center Mall

The new Safavieh Express soft-opened at the Stamford Town Center Mall yesterday featuring the company's Safavieh and Safavieh Couture brands of home furnishings.

Safavieh Express debuts at the Stamford Town Center Mall, a 750,000 foot shopping center, which is also owned by Safavieh.

STAMFORD, Conn. -- Safavieh opened its first Safavieh concept store, Safavieh Express, at Stamford Town Center Mall, on Dec. 10. The new store will offer the best of Safavieh and Safavieh Couture products, including a large assortment of area rugs, furniture, lighting, accessories and more.

As part of the Express concept, everything in the store will be shipped to any location in the Continental U.S. within three to seven days at no charge. Safavieh's staff of experienced professional designers will be on-site to provide complimentary interior design services.

"We opened our first Safavieh retail store in Stamford 32 years ago and we have deep roots in the Connecticut community. We are excited to continue our growth in the heart of Stamford at Stamford Town Center Mall. We created this store for the young community that has migrated to downtown Stamford, and which is moving to its new luxury buildings," said Michael Yaraghi CEO of Safavieh's retail division. Safavieh subsidiary Yaraghi Realty LLC purchased the Stamford Town Center Mall in the fall of 2020 from an affiliate of Taubman Centers Inc.

Over the last 40 years, Safavieh has come a long way from its roots as an artisan family business, transforming into a high-tech, omni-channel corporation with very sophisticated manufacturing and distribution operations. The company has grown from one showroom on Madison Avenue to 16 retail stores with two million square feet of warehouse space and manufacturing facilities on three continents.

"We're obviously very excited to have this new concept launch at Stamford Town Center," said Dan Stolzenbach, the mall's general manager. "The company is extremely forward thinking. They deliver high quality furniture and home furnishings, quickly and without delivery fees, which will most certainly appeal to our customers. We are delighted to welcome Safavieh Express to our ever-improving lineup of tenants."
