Report: Bloomingdale’s Testing Major Appliances In NYC Store

Bloomingdale’s has long offered its customers a broad selection of housewares. Now, the upscale department store is adding major appliances to its mix.

According to a report in the New York Post, Bloomingdale’s is adding a selection of LG white goods to its Manhattan store located on East 59th Street. Officials with the retailer told the Post that, for now, the addition of major appliances is a test.

Among the products included in the initial assortment will be a $7,000 LG refrigerator equipped with a door that becomes transparent when the user knocks on it twice.

It was not clear how long the test would run or if Bloomingdale’s had plans to add major appliances to other stores. Also, a review of the retailer’s website found no LG appliances listed online.
