Saks Fifth Avenue
Saks Fifth Avenue has brought New Yorkers access to luxury American and European fashions since 1924
Occupying an entire city block across from Rockefeller Center, Saks Fifth Avenue has been a flagship for fashion providing New Yorkers with access to luxury American and European brands since 1924. A New York icon, Saks Fifth Avenue caters to the most discerning consumers with ten levels of retail decadence and its beauty is reflected in its shop window displays. A spectacle to behold at any time of year, the displays transform into true works of art during the holiday season, complete with a light show projected on the building facade.
The lower level is always buzzing with a controlled frenzy with perfume spritzers at every turn. Spend some time indulging in a "free" makeover at one of the cosmetics counters, modelling the new Chanel, Chole and Fendi handbag collections and gushing over all the sparkly, shiny baubles in the jewellery department. The upper levels offer a more subdued shopping experience with women's and men's collections from top couture designers. The 8th floor is the crown jewel, a shoe department that is so packed with Jimmy Choo's, Manolo Blanik's and Badgley Mischka's that it requires its own zip code (10022-SHOE). The famous Bridal Collections, Fur Salon and personal shopping services are all available by appointment.
Saks Fifth Avenue store in New York have partnered with InStyle Magazine to bring you style tips when you "check-in" on Foursquare at hotspots in the shoe department, cosmetics department, contemporary department and WEAR section. Customers who check-in at two or more hotspots can show their check-ins at the General Manager's office for a free gift.
For those with champagne tastes on a beer budget, be on the lookout for storewide clearance sales in the spring and fall and search the Internet for discount coupons.
