Come Get Your Saks Knocked Off In LM

Experience Saks in a whole new way downtown.
With over 90 years of bringing fabulous designer handbags, clothes, shoes and other accessories to shoppers in Midtown, Saks Fifth Avenue heads to Lower Manhattan. Its second New York City location is now open in Brookfield Place.
Dropping its department store label, Saks has unveiled a new kind of boutique shopping experience with new services. What kind of new services? Well, Saks has established a “Save Me” hotline for any kind of fashion crisis. From a broken heel to an unseemly tear, they’ve got you covered!
While their new space may be smaller, they found ways to incorporate everything in just three levels. The first level includes fine jewelry, handbags, ready-to-wear and fragrances. On the second level, customers can find designer labels, fashion jewelry, shoes and sunglasses encased in a whopping 70-foot mirrored display. Saving the best for last, the third level is home to the “Fifth Avenue Club,” which houses five private rooms and two VIP suites for all your styling appointment needs. While there, you can try out the new “Power Lunch” option that includes a styling consultation, beauty treatment and lunch in just 60 minutes.
For those budget-conscious shoppers out there, no need to worry. The Off 5th outlet is also coming downtown in 2018.
