Saks Fifth Avenue

Neighborhood: West 40s
Type of Place: Department Stores

Saks Fifth Avenue is one of the best-known department stores in the world; its name is synonymous with luxury, and the whole 5th Avenue shopping experience. But contrary to what you might think, shopping here isnít just for socialites and heiresses! While there are plenty of high-end items from exclusive American and European designers, thereís also a number of collections in the mid-level price range. The salespeople at Saks are usually helpful, and most lack the attitude you might expect in such a high-end store. Iíd say they win high marks for carefully walking the line between helpful and hovering! The Saks store brand is often a good buy for those who are both price and fashion conscious. Looking for a baby gift Ė thereís a great department here, and nearly any choice will be sure to impress parents-to-be if it comes in Saks wrapping! Women will love to wander past the bridal salon Ė brides travel from across the world to outfit themselves and their bridal parties here. Finally, whether you are man, woman, or teenager, if you give yourself the chance, youíll be pretty certain to find something you canít resist in your respective shoe department!
