Timberland Opens New Retail Store In Skokie, IL On Friday, August 19

STRATHAM, N.H., Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Timberland Company today announced details about its newest retail location, at Westfield Old Orchard, 4999 Old Orchard Center, Skokie, IL. Doors open at 10 a.m. on Friday, August 19, giving Chicagoans expanded and direct access to the brand's authentic outdoor heritage and industry-leading approach to sustainability.

"We are thrilled about this opportunity to grow our presence in the Chicago area, which is one of our strongest markets worldwide," said John Pazzani, vice president of retail and e-commerce for Timberland. " Chicago is filled with dynamic people who love the outdoors and the lifestyle it embodies, whether they're in the city or on a weekend getaway.  At the Westfield Old Orchard location, they'll be able to find all the Timberland® gear they need to explore, wherever their adventures take them."

In step with Timberland® stores around the world, the new 2,300 sq. foot space is designed to reflect the company's long-standing commitment to sustainability, through the use of recycled materials and other eco-conscious building practices.  Build-out features include reclaimed wood and industrial machinery (used for table bases); recycled stoneware floor tiles; FSC certified woods; reduced-wattage LED lighting; Energy Star-eligible equipment and appliances; low volatile organic compound (VOC) paints; and water-conserving plumbing fixtures. The space also features a unique, custom mural celebrating "green spaces" throughout the Chicago area.

The new Westfield Old Orchard location will offer outdoor apparel, accessories and footwear for men and women, including the brand's popular Earthkeepers® collection of shoes and boots made from eco-conscious materials.  Shoppers will also have access to the latest outdoor performance footwear and elite collections, including the Timberland Boot Company® Collection (for men and women) and the Abington Collection (for men).
