Saks Off 5th To Open 100th Store

Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th is opening its second store in downtown Chicago on May 5, which will mark the 100th store for the off-price format.

Located at 1457 N. Halsted Street in the New City development at Lincoln Park, the new 40,000 square foot Saks Off 5th store will offer a curated assortment of more than 800 designer brands for men, women, kids, and home goods.

“The opening of our newest store at Lincoln Park is a significant milestone for Saks Off 5th. Not only is this the second store to debut in downtown Chicago, but this opening also marks our 100th store location in North America,” said Jonathan Greller, president of Saks Off 5th and Gilt. “This opening reinforces our strategy to bring more Saks Off 5th stores to downtown metropolitan areas, and we are proud to continue investing in vibrant cities like Chicago.”

Saks Off 5th opened a 23,500 square foot store at 6 S. State Street in April. The opening at New City is the store’s second location in downtown Chicago and the seventh store to open in the state of Illinois.

All Saks Off 5th locations now accept returns in exchange for merchandise credit. Parent company Hudson’s Bay acquired Gilt early this year.
