In the world of retail, it doesn’t get more upscale than Bergdorf Goodman. No wonder The Neiman Marcus Group saw fit to acquire Bergdorf’s in 1987. The luxury department store, still owned by NMG, is one of the premier purveyors of designer goods in Manhattan. It’s comprised of a women’s store and a men’s store located on opposite sides of Fifth Avenue between 57th and 58th Streets, and with a total of193,000 square feet of selling space. Both sites house major fashion brands like Chanel, Giorgio Armani and Oscar de la Renta, to name a few, and boast an extremely affluent and fashion-savvy clientele. Last year, sales for Bergdorf’s were estimated to be about $280 million.

The 100-year-old specialty store has long had an impeccable reputation due to its exceptional customer service, stellar merchandise and plush surroundings. It was founded in 1901 by Edwin Goodman and tailor Herman Bergdorf.
