Saks Fifth Avenue today has opened the new, 32,000-square-foot (about 2,972 m2) beauty space on the second floor of the New York Flagship with more than 120 colour cosmetics, skincare, fragrance and wellness brands - 58 of which are new to the floor [1].

Migrating from the main floor to the second floor, the new beauty space focuses on experiences. The floor is approximately 40-percent larger and now includes 15 new spa rooms along with services such as medi-spa treatments, facials, massages, manicures, brow services, a flower shop and more.

"As part of Saks’ overall growth strategy, we continue to look for ways to innovate, create and disrupt. The bold decision to move Beauty to the second floor, from the traditional main floor model, allowed us to build a one-of-a-kind destination enabling Saks to create the epitome of an experiential beauty floor," said Marc Metrick, president, Saks Fifth Avenue. "We continue to apply the principles of what we call The New Luxury to everything we do. What we’ve done with Beauty gives the customer a warmer environment, differentiated from what they can get anywhere else and creates a reason to come to Saks and experience our brand."
