Saks Incorporated’s Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH today announced that it plans to open four new stores this year – Kansas City, Ks., Oklahoma City, Okla., Northbrook, Ill. and Charleston, S.C. Additionally, OFF 5TH will open a new store at the Market at Town Center in Sugar Land, Texas, that will replace its store located at The Fountains in Stafford.
“We look forward to expanding our Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH store base into several new markets and to provide our customers in southwest Houston with a state-of-the-art store in Sugar Land,” says Robert Wallstrom, president of Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH.
The stores will range from 25,000 to 28,000 square feet and will be modeled in Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH’s innovative ‘luxury in a loft’ store design. Since its debut in 2008, the innovative layout has been well received and set a new standard in outlet shopping. This new design maximizes efficiency and flexibility, enabling easy changes in the general layout. The stores will be bright, uncluttered, with no hard aisles and one consistent hard-surface floor throughout. All fixtures will be on casters, ensuring ease in movement, and all hardware will be interchangeable between fixtures.
A distinctive assortment of luxury brands at great prices will be available in the new stores. Shoppers will have access to a broad selection in key merchandise categories such as women's wear, men's wear, children’s, fine jewelry, beauty, shoes, handbags, and sunglasses.
In celebration of the openings, each new store will host local launch festivities with special discounts and raffles. Additionally, customers will be able to participate in Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH’s MORE! Rewards loyalty program. This free program offers weekly discounts, sales and promotions on merchandise throughout the store.
