In the summer of 2000, Saks Fifth Avenue launched saks.com, offering an enhanced, personalized, online shopping experience. You may shop at saks.com in many ways: by a distinct look, a specific designer or an individual item. saks.com is committed to providing the same legendary service and style found in all Saks Fifth Avenue stores.
Whether you’re out on a shopping expedition, going to dinner, on your way to or from the theater, or just out for a walk around town, you won’t want to miss the holiday window displays featured at many of New York’s top retailers. Each season, these retailers bring their creative holiday spirit to their window displays, often with a unique theme each year. The artistry is varied – trendy, traditional, magical. Window browsing is a holiday tradition not to be missed!
Occupying an entire city block directly across from Rockefeller Center, Saks Fifth Avenue has been one of the city’s preeminent high-end department stores since it opened in 1924.
The ten-floor luxury behemoth buzzes with a well-heeled hum at the ground level, where cosmetics salespeople stand at attention and perfume spritzers beckon at every turn. Retail extravaganzas can be overwhelming; stop off at the information booth on the 50th street side before ascending to the upper sales floors.
Things quiet down considerably at the genteel, elegant in-store boutiques of designers like Chanel, Escada and Louis Vuitton.
On the fifth floor, find lower-priced labels like Marc by Marc Jacobs and Juicy Couture, as well as a casual shoe department. Ladies who lunch do so on the 8th floor at Café SFA, a full-service café and bar; the two floors below are devoted entirely to men’s fashions, outerwear, suits and shoes.
Chanel, Gucci, Prada, Christian Louboutin, and Jimmy Choo are just a few of the high-fashion labels you’ll find in this store’s extraordinarily comprehensive fourth-floor shoe department.
