The skin-care company Kiehl's Since 1851 has opened its first store in Utah, at Fashion Place Mall in Murray.
A grand opening for the location is set from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, with giveaways and promotions scheduled during the week, through Sunday.
On Wednesday, the first 50 shoppers arriving after 1:30 p.m. will receive complimentary gifts. Later in the week, shoppers will receive a free deluxe sample, complimentary skin consultations and 20-minute facials in partnership with Spa 1851.
In addition, customers will receive a best-seller trio of products with a $65 purchase and a full-sized Ultra Facial Cleanser with a $100 purchase. There also will be a raffle for prizes up to $250.
The store features a full selection of skin essentials, as well as body and hair-care products for women, men, children and even pets. Most notably, it offers services that support shoppers' choices, such as its try-before-you-buy sampling program.
Another store feature is its Recycle and Be Rewarded program, encouraging customers to return empty Kiehl's bottles, jars and tubes in exchange for complimentary products.
The company was founded as a apothecary in 1851 in New York's East Village.
After years as an apprentice, John Kiehl purchased the business and began operations under the Kiehl name, serving the burgeoning New York community with a variety of herbal remedies. In 1921, Kiehl's apprentice Irving "Doc" Morse purchased the business and expanded it to a full-service pharmacy, stocking medicines, tinctures and the first Kiehl's-branded products.
Over the generations, the Morse family has continued offering skin and hair formulations made with natural ingredients in the old apothecary tradition.
