Saks Fifth Avenue Unveils Plans for New Store in Houston

(New York & Houston – February 10, 2016) Saks Fifth Avenue is pleased to reveal details regarding the relocation of its store within The Galleria in Houston, TX. The new, 200,000 square foot, two-level Saks Fifth Avenue store is expected to open on April 28.

“This store demonstrates our commitment to the important Houston market.  It’s so exciting to be able to bring the new, luxurious and modern Saks to Houston.  We are thrilled to be able to better serve our customers – both current and new – in a store that exemplifies our commitment to offering our customers the latest fashions and the most personalized service,” commented Marc Metrick, President of Saks Fifth Avenue.

Designed in partnership with CBX, the new location boasts 20,000 square feet more than the existing store, providing space to showcase the second largest beauty and fragrance department in the Saks Fifth Avenue portfolio, including an all-new 10022-SHOE department. Many additional designers will be showcased throughout the store and an enhanced Fifth Avenue Club, with eight private shopping suites, will also be featured.

The store will also offer the Personal Service Experience, bringing the best of Saks Fifth Avenue to customers via a custom Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, which will travel directly to a client’s home, office, or hotel room. 51Fifteen Restaurant & Lounge, a local favorite recognized for its distinctive cuisine, will join Saks Fifth Avenue in opening in the new location, serving both lunch and dinner. In addition to private dining, an active bar will wrap the staircase in the center of the first floor.

Saks Fifth Avenue invites Houstonians to connect via its social channels, listed below, and to follow @Saks for exciting updates on the new location:
