Learn More About New Mexico Look
New Mexico Look’s newest location has just opened up in Cottonwood Mall. Owner Greg Edgeington and general manager Jeff Weitz both took the time to sit down and talk about their recent endeavor to Albuquerque’s West Side. “It was really just the next step we needed to take,” explained Edgeington. “People kept asking us when we would open up a store on this side of the river.” They agreed that Cottonwood Mall would be the best spot for them to open up and make that move. “It’s our first venture to the West Side,” remarked Weitz. “We’re excited.”
Edgeington, who also owns and operates the printing company Zia Graphics, wanted to start New Mexico Look to be “the face of New Mexico sports.” As he puts it, “we sell products that represent the state, from college to minor league to just New Mexico products in general.”
A lot of New Mexico’s sports teams, especially the smaller ones, don’t have a platform to sell their merchandise. New Mexico Look is able to be that platform for them, because they have not only the capacity to produce merchandise, but also an established fanbase and multiple locations across the city where they can sell those products.
“Branching out here has been a great decision, not just for business but also the community,” said Weitz. “A lot of the others stores have been in to talk to us … there are a lot of good people out here.” As for plans regarding New Mexico Look’s future, Edgeington stated that they want to fill the store with even more merchandise, especially Lobos, Aggies, and United gear. Weitz also mentioned that they will soon have flags hanging from the ceiling like their other stores – and everything, even the flags, will be for sale.
