NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH announced today that it plans to open a new store in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday, July 18, 2013. The store will be located in the Outlet Shoppes of Atlanta at Woodstock. With approximately 28,000 square feet of space, the new shop will offer world renowned designer brands at value prices.

“We are very excited to open a new store in the Atlanta area. The store's “luxury-in-a-loft” design will offer the community a deluxe shopping environment with a great selection of the latest designer fashion at an extraordinary value,” said Robert Wallstrom, President of Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH.

The store will be the third Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH in metropolitan Atlanta but will be the first store to be modeled after the company's innovative “luxury-in-a-loft” store design, which beautifully highlights the merchandise and facilitates easy shopping. The modern and uncluttered layout includes an open floor plan, moveable fixtures and bright lighting. Customers will have access to a distinctive assortment of designer and contemporary brands available at outlet prices, including women's and men's apparel, fine jewelry, handbags, shoes and children's collections. Women will find summer's most sought-after women's wear trends, such as bold colors and prints, maxi skirts and dresses and loosely woven knits. Men will find a wide range of designer brands ranging from sportswear, contemporary to formalwear.

To celebrate the grand opening, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH will host an exclusive event for shoppers starting July 18th and running through Sunday the 21st. Guests can receive a ‘gift with purchase' including BLACK Saks Fifth Avenue Beauty Bags and Private Savings Passes. Throughout the weekend, VIP guests can take advantage of certified Style for Hire stylists for a free personalized fashion consultation. Other festivities for the opening weekend include snacks and beverages for customers, a DJ, a photo booth and chances to win a $1000 shopping spree.
