Saks Fifth Avenue’s Downtown Pittsburgh store will close this week after 60 years in business. I like many of us will miss this store.
I remember being a child and going with my mother to the private elevator at the side of Gimbels to get to the 6th floor Saks.
I spent my sophomore year as the best saleswoman of the Saks Fifth Avenue College Board.
In the past whenever I needed something specific I made a bee line straight to Saks: a fur lined raincoat, a down jacket, dresses for the girls, a specific pair of shoes, leather gloves, Calvin Klein pjs, and even my wedding dress.
It really makes me sad.
