In the market for modern furnishings? Well, your goal is within reach. 

Design Within Reach, a modern furniture store, will hold a grand opening of its latest outlet location on Yonkers' Central Park Avenue Saturday. This is the first Design Within Reach outlet in New York north of New York City, where there are five other locations: an outlet in Brooklyn and four showrooms in Manhattan. There are also DWR showrooms in Stamford, Connecticut, and Paramus, New Jersey.

"We're thrilled to open a new DWR Outlet in New York," said Design Within Reach President John McPhee. "Its location along one of Yonkers' major shopping avenues as well as its proximity to New York City and the surrounding tri-state area makes it well positioned to serve bargain-hunting design lovers."

The outlet location will be selling "overstocked, returned and scratch-and-dent furniture, lighting and accessories," according to Design Within Reach's website. 

Design Within Reach's grand-opening celebration will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

The new store will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

No longer Forever 21?

Forever 21 has announced it will potentially close 178 stores across the United States. Three on the list of potential closures are in the Hudson Valley.

Forever 21 filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Sunday. According to USA Today, the 178 locations around the U.S. are in flux as "the company looks to renegotiate leases and rents with landlords."  

The Jefferson Valley Mall, White Plains Galleria and Woodbury Common locations are currently on the list of stores that will potentially close. However, it is not yet known if, or when, the stores would close as negotiations with landlords are still taking place.

According to USA Today, the "fast fashion" chain will still be accepting gift cards, returns and exchanges.

NUR Space opens

NUR Space, pounced "noor" space, is "an open space for people to gather around ideas of consciousness, health, pregnancy, birth and postpartum," said Caryn Davis, NUR Space's administrator and group facilitator.

The new community space held a grand opening last weekend, complete with a special crocheted placenta ribbon cutting. 

Nur Space's vision is to have "an ongoing conversation of grassroots community-building and shared voice in the importance of empowered physical and mental wellness choices, in our cycles and reproductive health," Davis said.

Throughout October, NUR Space will be offering drop-in breast feeding support and classes, baby play groups, acupressure for self-care, art of birth rituals, full moon mommy and me circle, aromatherapy, a dad's group and so much more. On Halloween night, Oct. 31, there will be a "witches high tea."
