NEIMAN MARCUS may be one of the world’s best known department stores, but it’s never had a location in Manhattan – until now. The Dallas-based company will open the doors of a 250,000sq ft store in Hudson Yards on the Far West Side in 2018.
“We needed to make sure that if we were taking this big, big step of coming to Manhattan, that we had a store that was going to be very impressive,” Karen Katz, the chief executive of Neiman Marcus Group, told The New York Times.
The changes come in the wake of the sale of Neiman Marcus earlier this year, which saw the company achieve a value of $6 billion. The group also owns Manhattan stalwart Bergdorf Goodman, which will not be neglected when the new store build begins, it will also enjoy a complete “floor-by-floor” renovation by 2020.
