Stanford Mall is in the midst of a multi-phase renovation project, and one of the first stores to completely transform from the ground up is the Bloomingdale's on the northeast side of the shopping center. And the changes are well worth the wait. This Bloomie's location is now three levels with 125,000 square feet dedicated to showcasing over 100 new brands and 68 designer shops, including All Saints, Lafayette 148, Sandro, The Kooples, and an exclusive collection from Dylan Gray.
Perhaps the most exciting new feature for the Silicon Valley customer is the tech-savvy dressing rooms that are fully equipped with wall-mounted tablets and mirrors with touchscreen lighting options. Calling for assistance is now as easy as a push of a button— no more walking to the sales floor, half-dressed in a size that won't fully zip. Intrigued? Good because you can give the store a spin yourself starting this Friday, October 10 at the grand re-opening. Festivities begin at 9:30am with a ribbon cutting ceremony; doors officially open at 10am. And Loyallists, pop in all day for 10X points on all purchases.
