Saks Fifth Avenue is a luxury American specialty store owned and operated by Saks Fifth Avenue Enterprises, a subsidiary of Saks Incorporated. It competes in the high-end specialty store market in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, i.e. ‘the 3 B’s’ Bergdorf, Barneys and Bloomingdale’s. Saks Fifth Avenue was the brainchild of Horace Saks and Bernard Gimbel, who operated independent retail stores on New York’s 34th Street at Herald Square in the early 1900s. Their dream was to construct a unique specialty store that would become synonymous with fashionable, gracious living. Saks Fifth Avenue became the first large retail operation to locate in what was then primarily a residential district. By offering the finest quality men’s and women’s fashions, as well as an extraordinary program of customer services, Saks Fifth Avenue has become the byword for taste and elegance. In the summer of 2000, Saks Fifth Avenue launched saks.com, offering in-store categories, as well as exclusive products and content. Saks.com delivers an enhanced, personalized shopping experience, and is committed to providing the same legendary service and style found in all Saks Fifth Avenue store. Saks Fifth Avenue today is renowned for its superlative selling services and merchandise offerings.
