While traveling through China,I spotted an unusual sight:A lady carrying something that had the words "BIG BROWN BAG"written on it.This, of course is the trademark for Bloomies' bags.It certainly made me aware of the popularity of this store.(While Bloomingdale's is not in China..YET,its bags certainly make the rounds)Bloomingdale's touts itself as "Like No Other Store In The World", and it certainly is.Great selection of men's women's,and children's clothing.Aisles of cosmetics,bags,items for the home and much much more at great prices (Especially when on sale)!

Bloomingdales' women's shoes departments

Although chaotic during sales, there's a good reason why--Bloomies' women's shoes departments offer fantastic variety, colors, styles, and prices. If that weren't good enough, they almost always have my size--8 1/2 or 9. You women out there who wear those sizes know how difficult it is to find great shoes. But the best of all is Bloomies' caring shoe salesmen. Unlike most other stores, they will patiently help you choose just the right shoe, and encourage you (not fawningly, either) by saying "Classic. Elegant. They look great," or "Those are fabulous." They also offer you the Bloomie's shoe club discount card. It's always a pleasure to shop there, even when it's crazy with the sales.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
