02 Mar Saks Fifth Avenue Opens Men’s Shop
After opening its first standalone shoe store last year, Saks Fifth Avenue has opened its first store exclusively for menswear in New York City.
Saks Downtown Men’s offers 16,000 square feet of merchandise in the relatively newly built Brookfield Place in lower Manhattan—the same location as a Saks specifically for womenswear. For the grand opening, the store features a sneaker visual display through March, titled World of Sneakers, showing more than 200 styles and includes designers like Fendi, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen.
“Our Downtown New York men’s store will be the first of its kind, fusing the in-store and digital experiences to create an all-channel store geared to the lifestyle needs of the downtown man and the way he shops,” said Marc Metrick, Saks Fifth Avenue president. “With this opening, we are cementing Saks as the destination for men.”
