Occupying an entire city block across from Rockefeller Center, Saks Fifth Avenue has been a flagship for fashion providing New Yorkers with access to luxury American and European brands since 1924.

A New York icon, Saks Fifth Avenue caters to the most discerning consumers with ten levels of retail decadence and its beauty is reflected in its shop window displays. A spectacle to behold at any time of year, the displays transform into true works of art during the holiday season, complete with a light show projected on the building facade.

The lower level is always buzzing with a controlled frenzy with perfume spritzers at every turn. Spend some time indulging in a "free" makeover at one of the cosmetics counters, modelling the new Chanel, Chole and Fendi handbag collections and gushing over all the sparkly, shiny baubles in the jewellery department. The upper levels offer a more subdued shopping experience with women's and men's collections from top couture designers. The 8th floor is the crown jewel, a shoe department that is so packed with Jimmy Choo's, Manolo Blanik's and Badgley Mischka's that it requires its own zip code (10022-SHOE). The famous Bridal Collections, Fur Salon and personal shopping services are all available by appointment.

Saks Fifth Avenue store in New York have partnered with InStyle Magazine to bring you style tips when you "check-in" on Foursquare at hotspots in the shoe department, cosmetics department, contemporary department and WEAR section. Customers who check-in at two or more hotspots can show their check-ins at the General Manager's office for a free gift.

Saks Fifth Avenue Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 Star Rating

4 Star Rating This department store is located on Fifth Avenue, across from Rockefeller Center, and at Christmas it's worth standing on the opposite sidewalk to watch the spectacular Christmas show. The 10-story facade of the Saks Fifth Avenue department store makes it a can't-miss spot. A two minute show of LED lights, repeated every 7 to 8 minutes. Even if you don't intend to shop, a walk inside is a must-do experience. The windows of the department store are impressive, especially at night.

5 Star Rating Wow, what can I say? This display is nothing short of magical. From the moment you step foot on the avenue, you're transported into a winter wonderland filled with twinkling lights, dazzling decorations, and an atmosphere of pure holiday joy. The attention to detail is astounding. Every corner is adorned with festive lights and decorations, creating a truly immersive and enchanting experience. Whether you're strolling along with loved ones, taking in the sights, or simply soaking up the festive ambiance, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Not only is the display visually stunning, but it also captures the true spirit of the holiday season. It's impossible not to feel a sense of warmth and cheer as you wander through this sparkling spectacle. I can't recommend the Sacks 5th Ave Christmas lights display enough. It's a perfect way to get into the holiday spirit and create lasting memories with friends and family. Definitely deserving of 5 stars for its magical atmosphere and unforgettable experience.

5 Star Rating Absolutely stunning 2023 holiday display. From their window display to their Christian Dior Carousel of Dreams, which is a show stopping light show on a zodiac-themed wheel, it’s absolutely fabulous. Right across The Rockefeller where some can ice skate. An easy train ride from CT to NYC. Few minutes walk from the Grand Central Station. Passed by Bryant park on our way where there is a skating rink and holiday shops to enjoy! Will definitely go back.

5 Star Rating The window displays are so cute this year! The lights are sponsored by Dior and they don’t disappoint! It seems like there is a light show every 10 mins or so which is fantastic. You could spend hours looking at all the decorations. Job well done!!
