Saks Fifth Avenue was the brainchild of Horace Saks and Bernard Gimbel, who operated independent retail stores on New York's 34th Street at Herald Square in the early 1900s.
Horace Saks and Bernard Gimbel dream was to construct a unique specialty store that would become synonymous with fashionable, gracious living, and the first Saks Fifth Avenue store was opened in 1924. Saks Fifth Avenue today is renowned for its superlative selling services and merchandise offerings.
