Store is located on entire Fifth Avenue block between 57 and 58th Street with the convenient subways N, and R to Fifth Avenue entrances. In my opinion Bergdorf Goodman's store has an excellent location. It is close to the Central Park and to all fabulous stores such as Prada, Fendi or Herni Bandel.Saks Fifth Avenue is an exclusive department store located in the heart of the New York City's Fifth Avenue shopping district. It is located on 5thAvenue between 49th and 50th Street. It is easy to get to this great location by taking E or V subways available on the 5thAvenue and 53rd Street. I think that location, which Saks Fifth Avenue has, is unique because it is next to the St. Patrick's Cathedral and across the street from Rockefeller Center, one of most visited places in New York.Bloomingdale's also has a fantastic location. It occupies the entire square block from 59-60th Street and from 3rd to Lexington Avenues. It is easily accessible from 59th Street by taking the subway 4,5,6, N or R. I believe the location of Bloomingdale's is very convenient since the store is located on the east side of Manhattan and is just minutes from the Queens.Bergdorf Goodman's building is an elegant, Arts Deco style building with arched door and curved glass. It has two very fine entrances from 5thAvenue and great spacious window displays with small ones between them. It is open Monday to Saturday from10a.m. to 6:00 p.m. with the exception on Thursday till 8:00 p.m., and Sunday from 12:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. I think that building is very well kept and handsome bronze lanterns at its entrances gives the building look of elegance.Saks Fifth Avenue is one of New York City's finest buildings. World famous window displays surround the building with the two entrances from the 5th Avenue between 49th and 50th Street.

They are clever and feature well dressed mannequins combine with fabulous ideas of introducing new designed clothing. Artistic, creative and elegant are few of many words describing the Bergdorf Goodman window displays store.I think that display on Bergdorf Goodman windows are the finest and most elegant displays I have ever seen. Attached pictures of Bergdorf Goodman window displays prove the elegance and creativity.Window displays of the Saks Fifth Avenue store are a very elegant and tastefully decorated. Displays in the windows throughout the store catch customer attention and are right to the point in presenting the merchandise. Also well light up and organized. Saks Fifth Avenue window displays have always been crowd stoppers. Enclose pictures of Saks Fifth Avenue window displays are an example of elegance and creativity.Bloomingdale's window displays are very contemporary. They present different colors of the daises flower changing colors from red to blue. Window displays are very funky and interesting. Merchandise is fantastically displayed and great light up. The idea of presenting the clothing is just eye-catching. I think that Bloomingdale's displays are pure entertainment.Bergdorf Goodman store has the right mixture of theater and opulence. Its merchandise is presented in a very clean and simple way. From my observations it is well organized and cater to upscale crowd. To better help customers' with finding the merchandise, there is a written directory provided on every floor by elevator.Saks Fifth Avenues store in my opinion has a well-designed interior, which helps to find needed merchandise. Spacious environment make shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue a pleasure. Merchandise is introduced in tasty and fashionable way. The mannequins portray a sense of elegance and style.Bloomingdale's interior is lacking the elegance and sophistication that customer might come to expect from premier department store. The interior is congested and the aisles are cluttered. It is very hard to find right size merchandise. They are also unfolded and on the floor. Some departments are messy and not organized.Bergdorf Goodman offers a wide selection of fashionable and quality clothing for both women and men. Bergdorf Goodman's store is usually visited by conservative and very sophisticated clientele and also by many international customers. Bergdorf Goodman caters to professional and wealthy older ladies carrying shopping bags from St. John, Salvatore Ferragamo or Gucci.Saks Fifth Avenue has to offer rich and varied selection of fashionable clothes from conservative to casual. Women in the age of 25-40 old years mostly shop at the Saks Fifth Avenue carrying shopping bags from Gucci, Prada or Henry Bendel. Since store offers tremendous selection of merchandise from youngest to oldest I believe that it would satisfy any customer.Bloomingdale's store carry trendy to a conservative middle class clientele. It has inspired younger to buy in that store offering the best possible value for the least possible price.Mothers with children or college students are most seen shoppers at Bloomingdale's.Also middle age professional or tourist usually carrying Macys or Lord& Taylor shopping bags.Bergdorf Goodman offers the complete package of ambiance, service and selection. Client services on 6th floor, shopping services on 3rdfloor or personal shopping services are just few examples of what Bergdorf Goodman has to offer. Coat check, day spa or nail service is very well known services as well. In addition, each department has its own sales representative, who is extremely professional and courteous.Unfortunately this store does not have a website or email address.Saks Fifth Avenue emphasized quality merchandise and expert service. Representative are knowledgeable and very friendly. Customer Service on 7thfloor, one-on-one Shopping Center located on 5th floor or International Ambassador desk on 1st floor is few of services that Saks Fifth Avenue offers. Also catalogs, store credit card, quarterly newsletters and exclusive promotions and giveaways are available.The store information is available through web site www.saksfifthavenue.comBloomingdale's has lot of services to offer. International Service desk/Visitors Center located on the 1st floor features multilingual directories and shopping assistance, also size conversion charts, tourist information, ATM and a currency exchanger. On the 4th floor there is an access to Personal Shopper and fashion experts. Bloomingdale's also offers catalogs and three different ways to pay a bill: online, in store and by mail. In my opinion the service on the floor was not as professional as I expected. Looking for a specific department I had to look for representative so I could get the information and during that time nobody asked me if I need any help. Also there was no directory brochure available either.Bloomingdale's can be found on the Internet site under: www.Bloomingdales.comBergdorf Goodman offers incomparable selection of fashionable merchandise.The price for evening dresses collection varies.

Those departments are located on two floors: four and six.The 4th floor is spacious and display of merchandise gives the elegant look. Well-presented mannequins represented the designed dresses of Vera Wang or Escada. Designer Vera Wang in this department had only three color dresses: red, black and sand. The price range of those dresses was from $3,000 and up and bigger sizes from 8 to 12 were available.On the 6th floor in the evening dresses department, the leading designers are: Carmen Marc Valvo, Barbara Schwarzer, David Rodriguez, Michael Akers, Jackie Rogers, Jen Valdi and Shalini. There were seven mannequins presenting dresses in the simple and clean way. On the front of the department there was two mannequins wearing sand color dresses. Displayed dresses was easy to find and each had for two dresses to buy from in the size of 8 and 10. In that department there were also three mannequins to the left wearing spring, light dresses and the wall with creative painting behind them made them look stunning. On the right hand side there was also one mannequin wearing blue dress, which had long rack of black dresses behind. On opposite side there was another well presented dress in the beautiful black color.In my opinion the buyer has taken a position in merchandising this department.
