ATLANTA — Saks Inc. is targeting overseas expansion as a key strategy as the U.S. economy falters and took another step in that direction Wednesday with the opening of a Saks Fifth Avenue men's store in Dubai.
Stephen I. Sadove, chairman and chief executive officer, said at the annual shareholders meeting here Wednesday that the retailer is looking at more opportunities in the Middle East and in Shanghai, as well as other markets. A Saks Fifth Avenue store is scheduled to launch in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in November.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
