BROOKLYN, N.Y.-West Elm, the Williams-Sonoma-owned home furnishings retailer, will open a new store at 678 Post Road in Scarsdale, N.Y., on June 28.
The new store will be the first to offer West Elm's complete fall collection, including furniture, textiles, decorative accessories and gifts created in collaboration with artists from South Africa.
