Terracycle’s UP Store, NYC, Now Extended To May 27th
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, in conjunction with the
Times Square Alliance and the Fashion Center Business Improvement District, has reinvented the corner of 8th Avenue and 41st Street at the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
“Since its inception, Blank Sl8 has played a vital role in the transformation of 8th Avenue into a destination for innovative art, design, fashion and retail,” said Barbara Randall, president of the Fashion Center BID. “I can think of no more appropriate anchor to Blank Sl8 during Earth Month than TerraCycle, a company built on innovation and sustainability. TerraCycle will be a spectacular addition to 8th Avenue.”
