Bloomingdale's has been driving hard to distinguish itself from the department store pack.
While the strategy has had more ups than downs, the retailer continues to elevate its appeal and offerings, expand to new locations and improve its top and bottom lines. And last month, its strategy received an industry seal of approval. Bloomingdale's was named "Department Store of the Year" at the Global Department Store Summit, a conference in London where 53 chief executive officers of major department stores were asked to vote for the best in the sector in 2008 based on which one had an enviable profile, differentiated positioning, innovative product and service strategies and strong financial performance.
