Five Below Opens First Manhattan Location on Fifth Avenue This Weekend

The family-favorite will open its first NYC location tomorrow!


Five Below, the family-friendly retail phenomenon will open its first Manhattan location at 530 Fifth Avenue, between 44th and 45th streets, tomorrow morning! Five Below offers a wide selection of products including toys, candy, fashion, beauty, smartphone accessories and Bluetooth speakers. Five Below makes it easy to say "YES!" because everything is just $5 or less.

"Fifth Avenue has long been the gold standard for any retailer, and we could not be more thrilled to bring our exciting shopping experience to one of the busiest blocks in the world," says Joel Anderson, president and CEO of Five Below. "We're confident that we'll be an appealing destination to many of the thousands of people who will pass our doors every day." 

Upon entering the store at street-level, you’ll be greeted by a giant, 567 square-foot Instagrammable mural depicting an iconic New York City scene. You and your kids will be wowed by the toy section inside the store. It features radio-controlled cars, flying heli-balls, hundreds of sports balls, toys for pets, room decor and more! This fun and upbeat shopping experience also includes a Big Apple product area.



“We’re very excited to be opening this store just in time for the coming holiday season,” says Anderson.  “We have put in place a dedicated program to increase our toy and gifts selection, not just for New York, but across the entire country.”

This midtown store will be open to the public at 9:00am on Friday, Nov. 2, and will be open seven days a week.
