About Bergdorf Goodman
Bergdorf Goodman has a long history as one of New York City’s luxury shopping icons. The company is currently owned by the Neiman Marcus group out of Texas, but their trademark locations are on 5th Avenue in Manhattan. The company’s history dates back to 1901 when Edwin Goodman bought into the clothing operation of his boss Herman Bergdorf. For most of its history, Bergdorf Goodman has been primarily a fashion center for women’s clothes and accessories. That changed in 1990 when they opened a Bergdorf Goodman that features men's clothing across the street from the main store. They have also expanded their luxury shopping experience by adding a dining center, a spa, and a gift store. More recently, the company has expanded into the online shopping market in order to cater to a wider audience. They are considered to have not only one of the best selections when it comes to designer clothes, and an excellent selection of high-end shoes and handbags. If you go to the Bergdorf Goodman location, you will find an upscale shopping experience and a vast selection of designer apparel and accessories. The store has gained some degree of pop culture status over the years. If you have never visited the location yourself, there is a good chance that you have seen it either on television or in the movies. For instance it was featured in Sex and the City 2 and the third season of "The Apprentice." The primary competition for Bergdorf Goodman includes companies such as Barney’s, Saks 5th Avenue, and Nordstrom. From clothes to shoes, jewelry, and other accessories, shopping at BG is considered to be one of the best luxury experiences in New York.
