GREENWICH, Conn. – MakerBot, the global leader in desktop 3D printing and scanning, is scheduled to open a retail store in Greenwich during the holiday season.
The MakerBot Store in Greenwich will be at 72 Greenwich Ave. A MakerBot store also will open during the holiday season in Boston.
The new stores will showcase MakerBot’s innovative 3D printers and scanner and will feature the MakerBot 3D Photo Booth, workshops and unique 3D printed gifts.
The soon-to-be opened MakerBot Stores in Boston and Greenwich currently are hiring staff and those interested in working for one of "The World’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Consumer Electronics," as named by Fast Company, should apply online at makerbot.com/careers.
MakerBot is a Brooklyn-based 3D printing company whose products have earned national recognition.
“Boston and Greenwich are great retail environments and we are excited to bring the MakerBot Store to both cities,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. “This is also a homecoming of sorts for some of our employees as many attended schools in the area; our president, Jenny Lawton, has also been a retail fixture in Greenwich, Conn., and ran her own tech company in the Boston area.”
Lawton is a long-time tech industry executive and is one of the top women in technology. A few years ago, she took a break from the high-tech world and ran two successful independent bookstores, Just Books in Greenwich and Old Greenwich, as well as owning Arcadia Coffee in Old Greenwich.
The MakerBot Store in Greenwich will be open from noon to 7 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays.
