MakerBot is on its way to 72 Greenwich Avenue just in time for holiday shopping.

The world of innovative electronics is coming to Greenwich this holiday season with the opening of MakerBot, the global leader in desktop 3D printing and scanning, on Greenwich Avenue.

The new store will showcase MakerBot’s unique 3D printers and scanner and will feature the MakerBot 3D Photo Booth, workshops and 3D printed gifts.

The store is currently 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 and its award-winning MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer has been heralded as Time magazine’s Best Inventions of 2012, Popular Mechanics’ Editor’s Choice Award for Overall Winner — Best 3D Printer and has received a TechCrunch Crunchies award for Best Hardware Startup, along with several other accolades.

“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, and ran her own tech company in the Boston area,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot.

Ms. 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 independent bookstores, Just Books in Greenwich and Old Greenwich, as well as Arcadia Coffee in Old Greenwich.

Visitors to the MakerBot Store in Greenwich will have the opportunity to experience MakerBot 3D printing technology, such as the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer and the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner, live and in-person.

Patrons will also have the chance to purchase amazing 3D-printed gifts and accessories made on MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers created at the company’s Brooklyn workshop.
