902-Wonderful!

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, look at this bit of news from the Postal Service of the United States.

Saks Fifth Avenue says its new shoe department is so big and fancy it’s getting its own ZIP code.

The quintessential Manhattan store is revamping its shoe department, and when it moves from the fourth floor to the eighth floor in August customers will be able to send mail to 10022-SHOE.

“We believe it’s such a big move for us it deserves its own ZIP code,” Saks spokeswoman Lesley Langsam Kennedy said Thursday. “We wanted to make it a destination.”

The U.S. Postal Service said it worked with the retailer on the new ZIP code, which is just promotional. Only the last four characters, which aren’t necessary when you’re mailing something, are specialized, and they won’t be read by sorting machines. The rest of the midtown neighborhood, which includes St. Patrick’s Cathedral, shares 10022.

The new 8,500-square-foot Saks showroom at the flagship Fifth Avenue store will have more shoes, more service and more stock room capability, Langsam Kennedy said. It also will feature a VIP room for private shopping, spacious seating, refreshments and shoe repair on hand, she said.

Some of the Manolo’s happiest hours have been spent on the fourth floor at the Saks. Of the course, he is very much looking forward to the new eighth floor.

P.S. Many thanks to the Manolo’s many internet friends who sent him this news item.

    “The new 8,500-square-foot Saks showroom at the flagship Fifth Avenue store …”

    That is to say, the Saks showroom is ten times the size of the house in which the Annalucia and the Tedesco have raised their children. The mind, it boggles. However, the Annalucia is glad of the news, and when next she is in New York she will make a point of the visit.

    Meh, that actually is a turn off for me. It seems a little too self-aggrandizing.

    Boy, that sounds like it would take a full day’s shopping to get through… I wonder if I can write a trip off as business expenses :-)
