5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Great place to shop! Several deals that you have to dig for. Great to buy purses, wallets, jewelry accessories. Everyone should go.

“Discounted department store ... Like Winners/Homesense/Stylesense over 5 huge floors...plus a separated shoes building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

If your interested in a day's work of shopping in NYC for designer items (Cole Haan, Armani, Ferragamo, and the like) at discounted prices this is a definite must see!
Only thing...customer service sucked, all day, until I got to the register. We asked one lady in shoe dept what the sales tax was and she said only the people at the register could answer... As if she never was a paying customer that lives in NY?

“Hectic! Big but nothing special.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012 via mobile

If you have already seen all the NY sights and checked out the big department stores then this would be worth it, but it is not interesting enough otherwise. Itis big but still just another discount store.The staff are incredibly unhelpful and the building is difficult to get around. That said, determined bargain hunters will probably find enough to fill a basket.

“The reviews are right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012 via mobile

I'm pretty hard to impress for discount shopping, having lived in a wealthy Seattle suburb where thrift stores carry 300+ designers for $20 and smaller ones for a few bucks, but this store is good. Not all of it is actually a bargain, but the stuff that is is high quality and well priced. Only looked at the clothes, though.

Also to add: I didn't find it overwhelming or disorganized or all that crowded. If you want to see that, go to the retail chains on times square.

“Hit or Miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

I dropped in to their Lincoln Plaza Store last week, it's a hit or miss affair, one need's to be lucky.
I pickedvupna great Tumi jacket, some very nice Polo belts and Zegna socks for very little money, 70% off retail.
So well worth visiting, forget about their staff but one can get lucky...
