NEW YORK — Shoppers and retailers alike are getting some breaks during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

NYC & Co., the city’s official tourism bureau, today will announce an “I Shop New York” promotion that starts Monday and runs through Feb. 18, Presidents’ Day.

More than 80 participating retailers, including Bloomingdale’s, Tiffany & Co. and Saks Fifth Avenue, are offering discounts, gifts-with-purchases and other special promotions. Macy’s will give a free tote bag or backpack with every $50 purchase while Caviarteria will hand out a bottle of Tattinger’s with a specific purchase.

But it doesn’t stop there. Shoppers who bring receipts from 10 different participating stores to the city’s Official Visitor Information Center at 810 Seventh Avenue at 53rd Street by Feb. 19 will be eligible to win a VIP Package to fashion week in September. The winner will receive VIP backstage passes, tickets to two runway shows and a digital camera from J&R Music and Computer World.
