Now that we've spilled the beans, a rep at Saks Fifth Avenue has officially confirmed to us that yes, LA's first Saks Off 5th outlet store is moving into a prime space at Beverly Connection. The retail business group who owns Saks, Hudson's Bay Company, tells us that the luxury department store's designer discounts mecca will be two levels, covering 27,000 square feet. The outlet will showcase an "open, modular layout, and feature a unique and unparalleled selection of designer finds for both men and women. With new arrivals shipped to the store weekly, customers will discover new and exciting merchandise, including one-of-a-kind designer finds, every time they shop."
"Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th's move to Beverly Hills is an exciting venture for us," explains Jonathan Greller, President of Outlets, HBC. "This is a fashion-forward, style-savvy community, and Off 5th will cater to the market with luxury, on-trend shopping - all at incredible prices - and become a must-shop destination for fashion in LA."
Saks Off 5th LA is expected to open July 2015. Get excited!
