“Best Department store experience”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I have shopped in many department stores, but my favorite is still Lord and Taylor. It's not as big as Macy's,( which I deem a plus). And it is not as fancy as Saks, but, it has designer clothing, accessories, shoes and everything else you could possibly want. The sales are always worth a trip.
One morning a few years ago, I was among the first to enter at opening, they stopped us in the entrance as all the staff and managers sang "God Bless America", it was touching and fun.
I never visit the city with out a trip to my favorite store!
And don't forget to stop for lunch or a snack at Sara Beth's. Great food and it's very relaxing, you never have to leave the store. They will also check your coat and shopping bags on the loungerie floor,( I think it's the 7th). What is better than that?

“The best of the upscale department stores”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We went to Macy's, Saks, etc, and this was our favorite. Great selection, great sales! No nosy sales people like some of the others. The only downside was the fact the escalator was broken when we were there so we had to take the elevator which took longer. But it happens, so I will keep my five star rating.

“Great shopping experience”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

I've been to this location a couple of times, and it's well worth coming back to. First of all the selection of merchandise is incredible and the sheer size of the store allows them to carry an extensive selection of clothing, that aren't on offer in oher smaller, local Lord and Taylor stores

It was pretty busy and bustling on the ground level. The shopping experience was more pleasurable on the upper floors since they were much, much less croweded.

And apparently they have some interesting in-store events. I walked past Mariano River yesterday, since he was there doing a signing for his new fragrance.

“The best of the upscale stores”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

OK, so maybe it's not Sak's or even Bloomingdales, but what a great store. Friendly staff, easy navigation, no haughty merchandisers who forget who they're merchandising for. A most impressive things was half a floor devoted to plus sizes, complete with plus size mannequins and a fine selection, as good as the 6Ps my wife was looking for in the other half of that floor. They also have a more that middle class folks can afford than the others in the area - it's not all Jimmy Choo and Ferragamo. I wish they would expand to the West Coast.
