Oneida Indian Nation Homelands (August 2, 2018) – Turning Stone Resort Casino today announced an exciting new retail expansion, in partnership with longtime Syracuse-based fashion retailer Joel Shapiro. Four new independent boutiques will be coming to Turning Stone this fall – a jewelry and accessory store, a men’s and women’s active wear shop, and two stores featuring women’s fashion.
Situated in a prime location near the entrance to The Tower hotel, the new stores will carry both national brands and original lines, provide shoppers with fashionable clothing and accessories in fun, modern and relaxed styles. The new boutiques will replace two existing retail stores in an expanded space next to the resort’s Winter Garden. Shoppers will also be able to earn and redeem TS Rewards points at the new boutiques.
“These new stores will offer an innovative, personalized shopping experience and will be a great addition to the array of world-class amenities already available at Turning Stone,” said Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter. “Since we are always looking to reinvest in Central New York, it was a natural fit to work with the Shapiro family and their Syracuse company to bring this vision to life.”
The retail shops will be operated by Shapiro, who runs Syracuse’s menswear store Mr. Shop, owned by his family since the 1960s. Shapiro is also an active proponent for local businesses in the community and has served on the Syracuse Downtown Committee, Armory Square Association and Landmark Theatre Board of Directors.
“The new stores will add to the vibrant energy of Turning Stone,” said Shapiro. “Shoppers will love the choice of colors, fabrics and styles. These shops will offer a friendly atmosphere that’s full of excitement, while maintaining the premium service which guests are already accustomed to at Turning Stone.”
