Burberry Day

Mayor Bloomberg has announced that May 28 has been declared the official Burberry Day for New York City! The day is in honor of Burberry's continued investment and support of businesses in the city and the country. On the same day, Burberry had the official lighting of the logo on their new US headquarters. The building, creative director Christopher Bailey says, is going to be part of the world-famous skyline and the logo will be visible by all of the city's boroughs. On Burberry Day 20% of all purchases made in the two New York stores on 57th street and in SoHo will be donated to The Burberry Foundation, which goes towards helping young people realize their dreams and achieve them through creativity. Burberry is also adding two more stores to the city, one on each side of their headquarters at 444 Madison Avenue, and is planned to open by the end of October this year.
