How do you wet the appetite of your ustomer in 20-30 years when he/she grows UP? It's our priority to reach the Millennial and Generation Z customer?
Have vision and know where your influence is geared to. Today, our customer is seeing the shows, just as we watch the shows. She can get access of the showrroms, just as we can get access to the showrooms now.
Most importantly, it’s thee ultimate speed in which we react to trends and fashion influencers.

“One of the strengths we have at Bloomingdale is that high low price. We have everything from CHANEL to 20 $ t shirts. When your giving into a trend or a luxury item, you can have the same experience,on the same floor, no matter your spending point. Were also looking to take core brands you see everywhere, and create new discovery moments within the brand. Its not just cultivating a product that is only exists at Bloomingdales as a capsule or idea, it’s also about finding something that is true to the Bloomingdales woman, and what she can find in that special moment.” -Heather ✍🏻👑🗽👗🎤💡📺
