Neiman Marcus Group (Dallas) explained via email that they are not intending to sell Bergdorf Goodman (New York), despite a report by the New York Post which said the company was potentially trying to sell the storied department store.

The Post explained Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp., the former landlord of Barneys (New York), was interested in purchasing Bergdorf. They also claimed the founder of WeWork (New York), Adam Neumann, was readying a bid with the person who attempted to purchase Barneys out of bankruptcy two years ago, Sam Ben-Avraham.

“We have no intention nor are we looking to sell Bergdorf Goodman at this time … We are strategically investing in our business and our brands with the intention of growing and strengthening the company,” a spokesperson for Neiman Marcus Group said in an email, according to Retail Dive.
