about our greenpoint location
our flagship store in williamsburg, brooklyn opened in 1997. we then moved to greenpoint, brooklyn in 2014.
at only 900 square feet, the original williamsburg store was a humble little thing. due to heavy demand, however, the store quickly transformed into a fashion destination, and as such, needed more space. carrie peterson, the store’s founder, needed a solid partner. sam fogarino, the store’s first employee, initially filled that role. after sam moved on to a full-fledged music career, cindy wheeler, who came to the beacon as a manager in 1999, took the reins. still owned and operated by carrie and cindy, the store made its big move to greenpoint in 2014, and now enjoys the luxury of inhabiting a 5500 square foot clothing paradise.
