The new store will be part of a redevelopment of a portion of Ala Moana, Hawaii’s premier shopping destination, by General Growth Properties. Construction will begin in 2014. Bloomingdale's will join a highly successful Macy’s store which already operates at Ala Moana Center.
The Bloomingdale’s store will include a wide range of designer and luxury goods, including women’s apparel, shoes, accessories, beauty, men’s, kids and home. Bloomingdale’s Ala Moana store is expected to employ a workforce of approximately 250 associates.
“Ala Moana will provide an exceptional environment for the distinctive, upscale shopping experience for which Bloomingdale’s is world famous. It is a beautiful open-air shopping center that is a recognized destination not only for local customers from the Hawaiian islands, but also for visitors from the U.S. mainland, Asia and worldwide,” said Michael Gould, chairman and chief executive officer of Bloomingdale’s. “In Hawaii, we will offer global customers the unique Bloomingdale’s sense of contemporary style, as well as the attentive service that sets us apart.”
Ala Moana will be the 38th Bloomingdale’s store location. In addition to 36 current stores, a new Bloomingdale’s store is expected to open in fall 2013 in Glendale Galleria in Glendale, CA. In addition, an all-new Bloomingdale’s is expected to open in fall 2014 in Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, CA, to replace an older store in the same shopping center.
Bloomingdale’s in Dubai is operated by Al Tayer Group LLC under a license agreement.
Bloomingdale’s also operates 12 outlet stores in the U.S., with a 13th opening in fall 2013 in Rosemont, IL, as previously announced.
Macy’s, Inc., with corporate offices in Cincinnati and New York, is one of the nation’s premier retailers, with fiscal 2012 sales of $27.7 billion. The company operates about 840 department stores in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico under the names of Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s, as well as the macys.com and bloomingdales.com websites. The company also operates 12 Bloomingdale’s Outlet stores. Bloomingdale’s in Dubai is operated by Al Tayer Group LLC under a license agreement.
