Position Overview:

In December 2016, Rent The Runway will be launching its NYC Flagship Store, an impressive 4,500 sq foot retail space in the heart of the Flatiron District. Ours isn’t just a store….it’s the Dream Closet of the website brought to life.  Instead of looking like a traditional store with mannequins and racks, ours will look like a closet stocked with bountiful options, as if to convey to the shopper that this is their actual fantasy closet, and they can take what they want from it.  Likewise, it won’t function like a traditional store – shoppers can sign up for a fitting room, connect to see more styles online, and pick up a last minute rental. We’ll also have our version of the ‘Genius Bar’, called the RTR Bar, to help customers post order (with pick up, drop off, and exchange).
