We didn’t just change the game when we opened our first luxury store in 1924.
Taking up a full city block on now one of the world’s most prestigious shopping streets, Saks & Company was an instant icon of style and luxury, revered by customers who flocked from everywhere through its doors. Since then, dozens of branch stores have opened, bringing the unforgettable Saks experience to customers far and wide.
The Saks success story continues today, with innovation at its core. Impactful in-store art exhibitions… World-famous window displays… Exclusive salons and restaurants… It’s a retail experience like no other. We are curators of the world’s finest collections and a showcase for the very best designer ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes, jewelry, menswear, cosmetics and gifts.
The Saks culture is a special one. It’s all about people.
Whether it’s surprising and delighting every customer who walks through our doors, or supporting and encouraging every member of our team, our commitment to people is what sets us apart from the competition.
Our team is on the cutting-edge of high-end fashion and we’re proud innovators in the retail landscape, always enhancing the customer experience in delightful ways. As a company with a rich history, we’ve changed the luxury retail game—and our team members know they’re part of a legacy of creative challenges, retail growth, and exciting new ideas.
