Bloomingdales 59th Street NYC Flagship is it's Own City

To keep a store like the fabulous and mammoth Bloomingdales 59th street flaship operating smoothly and staying current with the times – including new technology –  it takes an army of skilled people.

On a business trade visit yesterday, our guests who were in town from overseas for the NRF show, enjoyed learning some of their secrets. While we really can’t reveal them, here is one mind blowing tidbit: There are 1.4 million light bulbs! Another highlight, when shopping for lingerie, it’s nice to know there is a telephone in each dressing room, preventing the shopper from having to exit in their “unmentionables.”

The Visitor Center is a well known secret but certainly more people can take advantage of this wonderful resource. Located on the Mezzanine level, if offers complimentary coatcheck, docking stations for your cellphones, ipads for checking emails and even a nice sitting area to watch CNN for a few minutes, while plotting your shopping itinerary. And for those visitors from out of the country, make sure to take advantage of your 10% discount!

Bloomingdales, ” Like no other store in the world”, and we agree.
