Saks Fifth Avenue (New York) has officially moved its women’s store to a new location in Beverly Hills, taking over a former Barneys (New York) location that closed after the storied retailer’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy five years ago, Women’s Wear Daily reports.

Saks Fifth Avenue’s former location on Wilshire Boulevard is only 130 feet down the street from its new outpost at 9570 Wilshire Boulevard. Its men’s store – formerly an I. Magnin (San Francisco) flagship – did not move into the new building.

Set at 130,000 square feet, the women’s store is opening Thursday, Feb. 8, and boasts a range of designer ready-to-wear, jewelry and shoes. A Fifth Avenue Club located on the fifth floor includes 15 furnished styling suites – accessible via a direct elevator for VIP privacy. The rest of the fifth floor includes a Chanel shop-in-shop with a private balcony. Its new shoe department is 5000 square feet, nearly double that of the former location.

“This is a modern view of what a luxury multibrand experience should be … Beverly Hills is an incredibly important market for Saks. It needed to be completely overhauled and that was difficult given the age of the building. This was a lot easier and a lot faster,” Saks Fifth Avenue’s CEO Marc Metrick told WWD.
