This past weekend all the major NY department stores (minus Bergdorf Goodman) took their second markdown. In doing so, their websites have been crashed all weekend. On Saturday night it was impossible to to browse the Saks sale section, which is now hosting a markdown up to 60% off.
Neiman Marcus dropped prices an additional 25% this weekand and customers are complaining that it can take more than 15 minutes to check out. One frustrated customer commented, "The web site is jammed! its taking forever to load!" Another commented, I "can't even get on the site."
The final discount at Neiman Marcus is up to 55% off and there is still a great selection. That is, if you can cue yourself into the site. If not, you can always take a ride to Short Hills. It's not like you will be missing a beach day with this April-in-June weather.
