Goore’s for Babies to Teens Inc. celebrated the grand opening of its Young America® Signature Shop Friday, February 17, as part of its annual Presidents’ Weekend Trunk Show event. “This was a baby and kids extravaganza. If you wanted to learn all about children’s furnishings, accessories and products, this was the place to be,” said Ken Goore, president of Goore’s, the largest independent baby and children’s specialty store on the West Coast. “We are all about helping consumers make informed decisions for every purchase.” Owners Ken, April and Richard Goore were joined by Glenn Prillaman, Young America® senior vice president of marketing and sales, for the official grand opening. The celebration included a ribbon cutting and cocktail reception for customers, associates and guests. The event coincided with Goore’s annual Presidents’ Weekend Trunk Show, which draws hundreds of consumers each year. Goore’s has quadrupled in size to 32,000 sq. ft. since opening as a small boutique in 1992. The nearly 2,000 square-foot Young America® Signature Shop, located within Goore’s Sacramento store, simplifies the process of choosing furniture that is Built to Grow™. Fully accessorized and furnished vignettes help parents visualize decorating ideas and room layouts, while videos focus on Young America’s® style, safety and durability. A design area, which overlooks a children’s play area, incorporates accessory and bedding displays. Parents can keep an eye on their children while navigating the youngamerica.com web site, which includes photography of every piece in more than 20 collections.
