Navigating the store – To avoid getting lost in the store, Bloomingdale’s created their own free iPhone/Android app. It contains maps, information on restaurants and even gives access to special offers and store events. If you’ll be shopping for a while, take advantage of the baggage check/coat check.
When to go – Weekdays before lunch are the least crowded times to visit. During the holiday season, the store is more crowded than usual, so be patient!
Shopping bags – Ask the cashier if you would like to have you purchases shipped home.
In between shopping enjoy the many great dining options at Bloomingdales. Magnolia Bakery is a New York staple and you can often find ques lined up to try their cupcakes. Or try frozen yogurt (now an American classic dessert) if you're beating the heat. Go to Le Train Blue for a french savory meal or Flip if you want something more wholesome.
FLIP – Lower level – Salads, Burgers and even a kids menu!
