What is a 100,000 square foot Neiman Marcus store even more? Leaner and meaner observers believe a leaner, more focused Neiman will be a more viable Neiman. Neiman stores are undoubtedly elegant and pleasant. The glamorous shops is necessary, Driscoll said. But it needs a new generation of buyers. More to read Fortune retail coverage. This isnt to say Neiman advantage of not running a loyal customer. Yet in spite of its stamp, the chain is struggling to follow in luxury wars. The Neiman Marcus Hudson Yards in New York hosted a Fashion Week panel CBD in 2019. Whatever the form that will be easier to do with fewer stores. Eugene GologurskyGetty Images for Neiman Marcus Since the passage by buyers away from the luxury stores in recent years, many see the maturity of the landscape for consolidation. It’s the same sea of ​​sameness that injured the big Macys stores, J.C. With fewer stores, Neiman would be able to make those that remain more dazzling and distinctive. But all this makes the question even more pressing. The ladies who lunch are what the typical buyer might. There is too much capacity too few dollars, Dennis said. What’s more, Neiman has done its premium will be no favors last decade developing a fleet discount Last Call stores. And then there Farfetch and Net a Porter, who poached a lot of business. The point of a store is not on navigation, hoping for a nice surprise. Neiman ceased to make public financial statements last summer when the number of its creditors fell below the threshold set by the US The idea would be to have more weight with brands and cutting shops on markets where they have locations near each other. As much as Neiman Marcus can embody the ultimate in luxury retail, it sells a lot of the same merchandise as the chain Macys Incs Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, and Saksbrands as AG Yet even at the very high end, Neiman faces much more intense competition ten years ago, not only Saks, but its own suppliers. You just go into the den of lions where affordable luxury Theres a lot of competition, said Steve Dennis, a former executive of Neiman Marcus and Chief SageBerry Consulting. Whether or not this happens, and if Neiman seeks bankruptcy protection, the company most likely to become a more slender retailer to keep its place in the rich affections of buyers and carve out a distinctive niche for itselfall sales of luxury more data is already cratering, as evidenced by the quarterly results of LVMH and other conglomerates. shop To maintain national fleet now 43 stores, making it the largest luxury service business, to Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales, Neiman cast a wider net than in its heyday. Young consumers are not as married to one or more retailer brand and today the luxury buyers are happy to match a designer dress with vintage shoes from a thrift store and a handbag, they TJ Neiman Marcus, based in downtown Dallas in 1907 and for decades destination rigor of the fashion for ladies of society and debutantes as well, is famous for its super stylish emporiawith designer clothes presented in sumptuous sets with art by Roy Lichtenstein and Matisseand its top restaurants. There, again, the market speculation that the parent company Sakss Bay Co. Hudsons, take a stab at buying Neiman, this time in the court of bankruptcy and mergers, while keeping separate chains. The old iconic retailerwhich 113 years has struggled for years and is now pushed to the edge of the pandemic forcing shops to close indefinitelyis would almost deposit for Chapter 11 protection on Sunday, with emergency funding 600 million $ aligned, hoping to restructure itself as a healthier, and probably leaner business. A spokeswoman for Neiman Marcus declined to comment. The company said in March it started to close all but three of them to consolidate its luxury image. Luxury brands like Chanel themselvessuch, Brioni, Dior and Salvatore Ferragamohave opened much of their own stores in the last decade and have largely strongest websites they used to. A former CEO Neiman complains it a few years ago that Neiman buyers became less faithful stores and visited less frequently. Neiman wife already the cause that ethics in many ways. (Fortune in December predicted HBC buy Neiman and close a third of each chain stores.) HBC declined to comment. Approximately 31% of Neiman customers in households with a net worth of $ 1 million. denting its luxury CRED. Observers point Bergdorf Goodman, owned by Neiman Marcus Group and Harrods in London as models. To be fair, the e-commerce front, Neiman is no exception. Penney and Kohls, but luxury. Looks like the sale of many of Alexander McQueen dresses for $ 13500 and Kiton biker jackets for men for $ 10795 will not be enough spare Neiman Marcus to seek bankruptcy protection. And given how luxury shopping is likely to be hurt by the pandemic, the case is stronger. His most regular customers spend an average of $ 16,617 a year there, the company said in Fortune last year. Thats not the people lifestyle to live, said Marie Driscoll, CEO of CoreSight Researchs luxury and practical fashion. About 36% of its turnover is digital, more than Nordstrom or Saks get. And its huge debt burden of $ 4.9 billiona figure slightly larger than the annual sales and the result of two buyouts since 2006has handcuffed society.
