Bloomingdale’s is an American chain of upscale department stores owned by Macy’s, Inc. Founded in 1861, its primary competitors are Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom and sister chain Macy’s.
To think it all started with a 19th century fad – the hoop skirt. That was the first item that Joseph and Lyman Bloomingdale carried in their Ladies’ Notions Shop in New York’s Lower East Side. In the late 1800’s, most fashion retailers specialized in just one type of garment. Not the brothers Bloomingdale – their East Side Bazaar, opened in 1872, sold a wide variety of European fashions. It was the beginning of what would become a “Department Store”.
Bloomingdale’s is America’s only nationwide, full-line, upscale department store and a division of Macy’s Inc. Currently Bloomingdale’s operate 37 department stores and an ever growing number of Bloomingdale’s The Outlet stores in 13 states as well as the always open and fashionable Bloomingdales.com. Bloomingdale’s also has an international presence in Dubai.
Bloomingdale’s is committed to once again lead the way with exclusive merchandise, customized services, and alternative shopping venues. Carrying on the Bloomingdale’s brothers’ dream, we’re always finding ways to set our stores apart. That’s both the legacy and the promise of Bloomingdale’s.
At Bloomingdale’s, they will always have passion for the business and compassion for each other. After all, they are like no other store in the world.
