LE CREUSET ANNOUNCES GRAND OPENING AT THE OUTLET COLLECTION AT RIVERWALK®
Grand Opening Event Will Feature Giveaways and Cooking Demos by Chef Ryan Prewitt of Pêche
NEW ORLEANS (June 28, 2016) - The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC) and The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk® are excited to announce that Le Creuset, maker of the world's most trusted and treasured premium cookware, opened its newest store this week at The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk in New Orleans.
To mark the momentous occasion, a grand opening party is slated for Thursday, July 7 at 5:30 p.m. In addition to a delicious in-store cooking demonstration by Chef Ryan Prewitt of Pêche Seafood Grill, attendees will also have the opportunity to win Le Creuset products.
"The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk is proud to welcome Le Creuset to New Orleans," said Riverwalk General Manager Frank Quinn. "The new store is located in the heart of New Orleans and offers high quality cookware for cooks and chefs of all skill levels to enjoy. The addition of Le Creuset further strengthens our position as THE place to shop in New Orleans by enhancing our offering of first-to market retailers and exceptional values that will continue to attract locals and visitors."
"While we're known for our legendary enameled cast iron cookware, Le Creuset today is a source for a huge range of needs for your kitchen, from stainless steel and non-stick cookware to bakeware, accessories, wine tools, gifts and more. We're excited to be joining the New Orleans community - it has been a long time coming, and we can't think of a better place to celebrate our French roots than this joyous French-influenced city. This new store will be Le Creuset's first Outlet with a fully operating demo kitchen, and we look forward to experiencing first-hand the amazing Cajun and Creole flavors of this great city," said Will Copenhaver, Director of Marketing Communications.
Le Creuset has other outlet locations in Jackson, Miss. and Foley, Ala. The new store will be open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.
