Get Dressed__ Nike Opens First Community Store In Brooklyn
Nike selected one of Brooklyn's most historic neighborhoods for the location of their first Community Store. Home of Brooklyn College and the original Dodgers franchise, the first Nike community Store is located in Flatbush on the corner of Nostrand and Flatbush Avenues.
The concept behind Nike's Community Store is building a healthy community through sport. And it's all about keeping it local. The walls are donned with images of Brooklyn by Brooklyn artists and they sell Brooklyn-specific products like local sports teams apparel. They've ensured to hire more than of 80% of their employees from within a five-mile radius. The employees – called athletes – are committed to the community and to making this store a place to call home.
