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

January 14th, 2015

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.

Shop Gotham has programs for a variety of business trade visits to NYC. Reach us at info@shopgotham.com if you would like to explore on behalf of your corporation.

NYC Merchandisers on a Private Tour

October 7th, 2013

Shop Gotham hosts corporate group shopping tours in addition to our other shopping services. In the fashion world (and several others), it is vital to progress with what is new and interesting in retail in order to succeed. Our private industry tours allow corporate members to do precisely that. Just last week, we hosted a group from a high end fashion company (whom we must keep annonymous). Merchandisers from this worldwide corporation spent the afternoon alongside our knowledgable guides and had an educational shopping experience tailored specifically to their companies business needs. This is a fun and educational alternative for entertaining corporate groups that are visiting NYC.
