The smell of sophistication strikes right at the entrance of Saks Fifth Avenue as agile cosmetics and perfume salespeople immediately beckon. Nine more floors later, this mammoth shopping experience—the Saks flagship store occupies an entire city block—will have turned even the most inexperienced shopper into a pro, with visits to in-store boutiques from the likes of Louis Vuitton and Chanel.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does the shoe floor actually have its own zip code? It does. Saks Fifth Avenue’s mammoth shoe floor carries its own 10022-SHOE zip code. (File that one under nice-to-know.)
Is there anywhere to eat? The flagship has two restaurants, SnAKS on the fifth floor and Café SFA on the eighth.
When can I see the store’s holiday windows? Though there is no set date, the flagship typically debuts its holiday windows around Thanksgiving. In addition, Saks has been producing its spectacular Holiday Light Show since 2005, covering its facade with LED projections of snowflakes—and causing plenty of rubbernecking along Fifth Avenue.
Does Saks put on other events? Yes. To see a list of upcoming designer showcases, trunk shows, beauty demos and more, visit saksfifthavenue.com.
