NEW YORK — Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th is opening its third store in metropolitan Atlanta, but the 28,000-sq.-ft. space at the Outlet Shoppes of Atlanta at Woodstock will be the first modeled after the company’s “luxury-in-a-loft” design.

“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.

According to the company, the luxury-in-a-loft store design “highlights the merchandise and facilitates easy shopping.” The modern, uncluttered layout includes an open floor plan, moveable fixtures and bright lighting.
