Yes, Neiman Marcus
For years I disparagingly referred to the high-end department store as "Needless Mark-up."
Two times I tentatively wandered into the Scottsdale outpost. I bought one thing — Bobbi Brown lipgloss.
But, now I owe Neiman Marcus a consumer mea culpa. While all these other fancy stores were trying to get my business this holiday season with special offers, only Neiman Marcus consistently offered free shipping and super-duper discounts. Nordstrom never did that. Neither did Bloomie's. Saks did offer free shipping, but its prices are so high that it didn't matter much.
So, I'm a convert to neimanmarcus.com. And, I'm happily awaiting this Patterson J. Kincaid micromodal tank (super soft!!!), which was a whopping 75-percent off. Yay me. Go, Neiman.
