NEW YORK — Michael Gould, the former Bloomingdale’s chairman and chief executive officer, wears his passion for the business on his sleeve.
So it was no surprise that when speaking candidly at the Fashion Group International’s “tastemakers” breakfast at the 21 Club here Tuesday, Gould spoke up for having concessions in department stores as he referred to the Bloomingdale’s 59th Street flagship as “a mall,” and described Nordstrom as “the anomaly of all” in its ability to sell price points spanning those seen at Neiman Marcus down to Macy’s.
