Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH to Open

Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH is coming to Austin. The luxury-meets-value store will open in the spring of 2016 in the Gateway Shopping Center in north Austin on Research Boulevard. The store will be 50,000 square feet with an open, modular layout and designer finds for both men and women, according to a Business Wire press release. Austin has not had a Saks Fifth Avenue store of any kind since 2012, when Saks Fifth Avenue closed at the Arboretum. “Austin has gained a fantastic reputation as an energized, community-minded city and we are thrilled to be opening our first store here and joining that community,” stated Jonathan Greller, President of Outlets, HBC. “Texas continues to be a flourishing market for us and we look forward to welcoming Austin shoppers and showcasing the exceptional product and customer experience we are known for.”
