The mother of all department stores
One of the grandest shopping complexes in the country, perhaps in the world. Amazing because of its sheer size, but also the collection of designers, brands, and perhaps every little bit of current consumer culture available anywhere.

Grand Dame of Dept Stores

This is really more than a department store. Its like going shopping at some of the greatest designer stores but finding them all in one place. You feel like a million bucks the moment you set foot in this place. Its exquisite. The stain glass ceiling is really magnificent.

My Favorite store in the World.

Love,Love,Love it...I Love a department store anywhere in the world.Put me in a city and if there is a Dept store worth its salt i will find it.This one is by far the best and the architecture inside is beautiful.If you have time make sure you go to the perfume section and gaze up at the amazing stained glass ceiling.
