In short, yes, Bloomingdale’s is somewhat expensive and luxurious. It is an affordable luxury store. The elegant and upscale department store Bloomingdale’s is known for its more somewhat modest price points. It features clothing in the $100-$500 range with a focus on luxury brands such as Gucci or Burberry alongside lesser-known – something that you won’t find at other retailers!
For shoppers looking for an excellent value without sacrificing quality, there’s also their consignment boutique called “Stealers Box”. This label offers designer apparel up to 80% off retail prices.
A steal of a deal can be found at the Stealer’s Nest where you’ll find luxury goods at discounted prices.
With 38 stores across 11 states, Bloomingdale’s has become the only nationwide full-line upscale department store. The iconic New York City flagship and its many other locations carry designer pieces from top international brands such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, Jimmy Choo, Michael Kors, Tory Burch and Marc Jacobs.
The store also includes brands that are of smaller size, but gaining popularity. There are also exclusive brands such as AQUA and The Men’s Store. Today, Bloomingdale’s have managed to attract customers from groups that are thin and small, millennials, baby boomers and matures. They’ve got something for everyone.
The original Bloomingdale’s store in uptown Manhattan, New York City has been a major tourist attraction since the 1970s and 1980s when it became known for its flashy merchandise displays. The clothing department was especially well-known because of how they dressed their models who walked down Fifth Avenue displaying outfits from every decade imaginable.
This made them second only to Ellis Island as one such famous spot that people would flock to on NYC tours or just want an amazing view while visiting town!
The New Concept “Bloomie’s“
With the rise of online shopping, many brick and mortar retailers have started opening smaller stores. Bloomingdale’s recently announced that they will be following suit with a new “Bloomie’s” located inside their Fairfax location on August 26th which becomes only one week from today!
This store has been designed as a trial run for future adaptations such as adapting to shoppers buying more directly from top brands or luxury e-commerce sites instead of making fewer visits to traditional malls; bringing sales in the house where customers already are at home rather than driving around town looking nearby places open during certain times, allowing them greater accessibility
For the last decade, luxury department stores have been fighting a losing battle trying to attract prospective customers. As name-plate brands opened up branded boutiques right next door and online shopping began catching on rapidly in recent years with sites like Groupon coming onto the scene all these retailers were faced with difficult decisions about how they could keep their customer base as well as what kind of changes needed an effect fast enough before it was too late for them?
The luxury department stores have been left in a difficult position as online competition has increased. The brick-and retail foot traffic is dwindling and they’re forced to close stores or “optimize” their footprint by cutting back on location numbers, according to Time reports.
In the last year, five of America’s most prestigious brands have closed their doors. Lord & Taylor is now a digital-only retailer while Neiman Marcus filed for bankruptcy with plans to close 37 stores including its much-vaunted location in New York City at Hudson Yards leaving only Barney’s still standing as one of few survivors from the corona epidemic.
A staggering amount since 2014 when there were over 677 announced closings nationwide.
Hopefully, Bloomies will bring new life to the omnichannel offering and give brick and mortar a new life that can exist in parallel with all online solutions. Only time will tell.
