WKND Comes to the Warren Town Center
Warren Town Center is pleased to announce that its first and new tenant WKND has opened for business. With a mix of men’s and women’s fashion apparel, accessories and gifts, WKND celebrates that everyone loves the weekend and living it in comfort and style.
 
David Asmar, a Warren resident, with his good friend Jenny Au are the driving force behind WKND. “We wanted to create a fun shopping experience, accessible to all with a great mix for both women and men,” says David. “For me its about the mix of high/low and not taking fashion so seriously – experimenting with different styles and textures and themes that make putting together a new outfit fun or the joy of finding and adding the right accessory to compliment an existing one. WKND is all about comfort and our space at the cozy Warren Town Center is perfectly aligned with the atmosphere of our store.”
 
“We are thrilled to welcome David and WKND as our first retail shop. The community response has been overwhelming and we look forward to WKND’s continued success,” says John Favreau, who has been leading the economic and social revitalization of the Warren Town Center.  
 
As a Pop-Up retail store, WKND will be open every Thursday through Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm and Sundays from noon to 5 pm the months of November and December.   Just in time for the holidays, WKND brings a fun and exciting shopping experience back to Warren. WKND will be hosting a holiday kick off party on Black Friday, November 23rd from 5–8 pm and will be participating in Small Business Saturday on November 24th. 
 
About Warren Town Center: Situated at the crossroads of Litchfield County at Routes 45 and 341, the Warren Town Center is the only commercial office and retail space in Warren, Connecticut. We are dedicated to providing businesses and professionals rental space with a country heart.
