New Local Businesses Have Opened at the Travel Store Galleria

New local businesses have opened at the Galleria. They include Johnny Was bohemian fashions for women and Nic+Zoe sophisticated yet relaxed apparel in petite, misses and plus sizes.

Luxury travel retailer DFS Group has unveiled its first Resort Galleria in Queenstown, New Zealand. The store takes a casually sophisticated approach to high-end fashion and beauty that contrasts with DFS’ traditional downtown city center stores.


Samsonite is a travel luggage brand with over one hundred years of history. It offers a variety of travel luggage products like suitcases, backpacks, duffel bags, and toiletry bags for both adults and kids. The company also has a wide selection of travel accessories.

Samsonite has a commitment to deforestation free supply chains for their leather and paper packaging. They have timebound and measurable policies that ensure their suppliers are adhering to these standards.

Samsonite has a new line of luggage called the Cosmolite 3.0. This series is designed with durable Curv material that looks fashionable and is lightweight. It has features that make it easy to maneuver including a mono-tube retractable handle, TSA combination locks, cross straps, 360 degree spinner wheels, and a zippered divider. This line comes in sizes ranging from a 20 inch to a 28 inch. It is available online and in stores worldwide. The company also offers an extensive selection of luggage repair services.

Urban Undercover

With travel as a driving force for the brand, Urban Undercover designs everyday essentials that are designed to go anywhere you go. They are passionate about encouraging experiences and adventures with a focus on sustainability, smarter manufacturing, functionality, performance, and style.

When COVID-19 brought in-person sales to a halt, Urban Undercover founder Sairey Gerner pivoted her business model and moved to e-commerce. But she’s still staying true to her mission, and she’s found success in the new world of e-commerce.

Her Galleria space—a cozy 300 square foot slip of a space in the G concourse—carries the full assortment, along with a fresh mix from other local brands that share a like-minded ethos around versatile, travel-friendly staple pieces. They’re part of Six For Good, a local makers-focused collaborative concept with locations at Rosedale Mall and The Shoppes of Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove. The brands include Hagen and Oats, Thumbs Cookies, Towel Topper, Essence One, and Baubles and Bobbies.

Luggage n’ More

Aside from offering a huge selection of luggage sets, bags, and accessories, Luggage n’ More also has briefcases, duffel bags, handbags, and other travel necessities. They offer a variety of shipping services, including white glove van line service, to ensure that your luggage is safe and secure on its way to its destination. They also provide storage options and have a package shop for those who need help packing and shipping their belongings.

Taj Singh, owner of Luggage n’ More and A 2 Z, has been at the Galleria in White Plains for 17 years. While many other tenants have moved out, he chose to stay until the end. He has already secured a new location at the Stamford Town Center. However, he believes that the Galleria will be torn down eventually.

Gift Wrap Station

A gift wrap station is the perfect way to organize all of your wrapping supplies. This storage container holds 14 rolls of gift wrapping paper, ribbons, bows, pens and scissors, tape, and more! It also features a handy dowel system to keep all of your rolls of paper organized. This storage solution is ideal for scrapbookers, crafters, and quilters, too!

You can even use cute jars or vases to store your embellishments and gift tags. Another great idea is to designate a drawer specifically for ribbon, so that you don’t have to search for it every time you need it.

All season long, enjoy complimentary gift wrapping at the Gift Wrap Station located near Clean Market on the second floor by the Winter Garden escalators. Simply show your BFPL shopping receipt to take advantage of this offer. For your convenience, the gift wrapping service is available between 10am and 8pm.
