Saks Off 5th opens, relocates stores
New York -- Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th plans to open a second store in Orlando, Fla., on Oct. 3. On the same date, the retailer plans to open its newly relocated store at Potomac Mills in Woodridge, Va.
The new 26,000-sq.-ft. Florida store is located in Orlando Premium Outlets - Vineland Avenue. The new location will be at The Promenade and will be designed after Saks Off 5th’s “luxury in a loft” concept. The design of the store is intended to maximize efficiency and flexibility, enabling easy changes in the general layout. The store 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.
The new Virginia store with approximately 30,000 sq. ft. has been renovated and modeled with an open layout in the “luxury in a loft” concept, and will be situated at a prominent location in the outlet mall.
“The very first luxury-in-a-loft Saks Off 5th store was launched in Orlando, therefore we are very excited to return and offer another sophisticated boutique-style store to the community,” said Robert Wallstrom, president of Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th.
