A nice looking store with good selections of everything. Well laid out and good signage. Only 1 problem really ..... the prices!!! Honestly the mark up in this store is massive. We played a game to see who could find the most expensive item..... there was a lot of competition. If money is no object to you then go and... More

We saw some of the most expensive merchandise (especially clothing) we had ever seen. Coming from small town America, the reality of the prices was quite a shock. Still, worth a visit just once, more if you're a dedicated shopper.

We visited this famous store and was unaware of what to expect. The staff were great on every floor. The shopping was enjoyable. The store has something for everyone and you can get a discount from the customer service desk because you are an overseas guest, how good is that.

No trip to New York would be complete without a visit to Bloomingdales. From the entrance the perfumeries give you complementary spurts of the latest on the market. The best time to visit is Christmas where the lights and the atmosphere and the smells of spices fill the air and a whole level is filled with everything trending and traditional... More

I promised my wife a handbag from New York and what better place to buy one, there were millions (well not quite millions) on display. Staff were helpful and not necessarily trying to sell the dearest which surprised me.

I had not been in NYC for a few years and was looking forward to a trip to Bloomingdales. However it was not as big or brilliant as i had remembered. I much prefer Selfridges in London it could knock spots off Bloomingdales. There was not much feel of "fun" shopping or indeed the visit being an event. I really... More
