Patrons Get Sneak Peek of Saks Fifth Avenue Renovation

The renovation will bring new shoe brands and designers to St. Louis.

Tonight, the newly renovated Saks Fifth Avenue store at Plaza Frontenac will host a private event showing some of the store’s new features.

The first phase of the $5 million renovation will include a redesigned interior and will double the size of the shoe department, according to a March St. Louis Business Journal article.

The store will also bring new brands, such as Manolo Blahnik and Miu Miu shoes, Diane von Furstenberg and Alexander McQueen handbags, and Rebecca Minkoff and Milly apparel, according to a St. Louis Post Dispatch article.

According to a release about the renovation, the changes will bring a "New York point of view to St. Louis.”  

“St. Louis was ready for it,” said Doug Moss, the store's general manager, quoted in a St. Louis Posted Dispatch article about the store. “Our customers – they travel and shop everywhere. Now we're just providing them the opportunity to come in and touch and feel it here. I think St. Louisans are very loyal to St. Louis and they'd rather do business here.”

Thanks, Carol. To compensate for their shopping expeditions, I buy my clothes at Sam's and Costco. I can't wait for their remodeling soiree. Maybe they will give away free pretzels or hotdogs. They say you can't take it with you, so what the heck. My wife has promised me I can take it with me. She says she will write a check for my entire net worth and throw it into my casket right before they inter me near the entrance to Saks, or Neiman's, which ever one gives her the most points.

Jim, I am disappointed an editor of a news media is showing his Obama bias. Carol, someone should coin the phrase " Obama Zombie".

Ditto Jo, pretty creepy scary stuff. Even worse is this from his bio "I'm a registered Democrat and I feel very strongly about liberal issues," gee like I couldn't guess. Sad was the incoherent babling that he posted. I honestly had no idea what he was saying. That was really odd for a so-called journalist but not the first time that I got a response from a lib that was incohernet. You should try Don Corrigan at the Webster Kirkwood Times - whew!

I know Jim personally and he is a great guy. We just do not see eye to eye on political issues and I have always found journalistic bias bothersome.

Yeah, I know the type - real nice guys unless you disagree with them politically, and then bar the door Katie as they will let it fly. I find that a person's true character can be revealed in a political confrontation and how they treat you after that. I deal with these types on-line everyday. They think they are the nicest guys gals) in town, unless you are a conservative women, and the hatred they spew is astonishing. They act all compassionate for others - unless you are a conservative and that passion goes right out the door and turns into vile hatred.
