Our Story

ASG Equities (ASG) and Century 21 Department Stores (Century 21), headquartered in New York, are privately owned and managed by the Gindi family, with the help of over 4,000 team members. Century 21 Department Stores was founded in 1961 by Al and Sonny Gindi. Century 21 is one of New York’s top shopping destinations for New Yorkers and tourists alike. Shopping at Century 21 is a true New York experience, and its legendary assortment of deeply discounted designer merchandise has helped propel the Century 21 brand and large loyal cult customer base. Century 21 is actively growing with multiple store openings and is excited to bring that special New York experience to other markets. From the inception and over the last fifty years, the Gindi family has re-invested Century 21’s profits towards the continual improvement and growth of the retail stores, and also has invested significant capital into separate real estate investments and various other ventures. The Gindi family are leading philanthropists with active involvement in many civic, educational and cultural institutions throughout the United States.
