Beacon's Closet74 Guernsey Brooklyn, NY 11222
The first store, in williamsburg, opened in 1997. at only 900 square feet, it was a humble little thing. due to brisk, and heavy demand, however, the store quickly transformed into a fashion destination, and as such, needed more space. carrie peterson, the store’s founder, needed a solid partner. sam fogarino, the first employee, initially filled that role. after sam moved on to a full-fledged music career, cindy wheeler, who came to the beacon as a manager in 1999, took the reins. still owned and operated by carrie and cindy, the store made a big move in november of 2002, to a 6000 square foot warehouse across from the brooklyn brewery on north 11th st, which was later taken over by vice media in 2014. on march 29th, 2014, this original store made its biggest move to date by unveiling its new space at 74 guernsey st. in greenpoint. the glorious 7500 square foot clothing paradise at 74 guernsey in greenpoint will remain home for the beacon's closet flagship store for the foreseeable future!
