Style News: Bloomingdales Opens First Outlet Store!
Bloomingdales, one of my all-time favorite shopping destinations, is opening two new outlet stores this week! A first location in Potomac Mills in Woodbridge, Va., recently opened its doors, and a second location will open August 27th in the Bergen Town Center in Paramus, N.J. Here’s the scoop from WWD:
Sixty to 70 percent of the merchandise comprises excess goods from vendors; 20 percent is clearance from Bloomingdale’s regular stores, and 10 to 20 percent is manufactured specifically for the outlets…The majority of the merchandise are 40 to 60 percent off, with some items up to 80 percent off.
If all goes well at these first two stores, expect Bloomies to open four or five outlets a year! Take a look at some more pics of the new outlet stores. These aren’t your average outlet stores!
