Classier than Macy’s (see below) and a bit more logical in terms of layout, Bloomingdale’s is a shopping behemoth with enough excitement to keep shopaholics occupied for several hours. Founded in 1872 as a hoopskirt store, the vast emporium is still in the forefront of fashion, with four complete floors just for garments (basement for men’s; second, third, and fourth floors for women’s). It also sells housewares, furniture, kids clothing, luggage, kitchen tools, accessories, cosmetics, and jewelry, but its strength are the clothes.
