New Chicago Off Fifth Location To Include ‘Dynamic’ Home Department

Saks Fifth Avenue will open an Off 5TH outlet store at NewCity, a new mixed-use development that includes retail, dining, entertainment and residential living in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood.

The retailer emphasized that the location would house a “dynamic” home department with seasonally appropriate, on-trend furnishings.

Saks slated a May 2016 opening for the 40,000 square feet store. The NewCity location will arrive as the seventh Off 5TH’s in Chicago, according to the retailer.

The Lincoln Park opening is one of two Off 5th debuts Saks has set for this spring in Chicago, the retailer noted. The other will occur at Six South State Street at the corner of State and Madison.

“As one of the premier shopping destinations in America, Chicago provides an outstanding opportunity to propel the Saks OFF 5TH brand and reach new customers in the city and surrounding region,” said Jonathan Greller, president of Outlets, HBC, in announcing the store opening. “As we continue to open new locations in downtown core markets, we are seeing incredible consumer response, and we look forward to serving Chicago residents and visitors at this spectacular new shopping development when we open at NewCity next spring.”
