It’s here, ladies and gentlemen! You no longer have to trek outside of the city to get your luxury retail outlet fix. Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH has officially opened its first metropolitan location right here in San Francisco.

The new Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH store held its grand opening on Thursday, May 28th, 2015 in its new 40,500 square foot space. Customers were invited to join the store in celebrating its grand opening as early as 9:00AM. In fact, gift cards worth $50 each were awarded to shoppers every five minutes from 9:00AM until its doors officially opened at 10:00AM. One lucky shopper even won a $500 gift certificate.

The giveaways only continued throughout the day. At 5PM, shoppers entered the store on a flashy hot pink runway and were greeted with even more opportunities to win big. A giant glass-encased raffle located on the bottom floor offered shoppers a chance to win either a free Ghirardelli Chocolate Bar or more gift certificates. Those who proved unsuccessful in the raffle still enjoyed the store’s complimentary make up application, hair braiding and nail polish touch ups.

This San Francisco location of Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH has truly set the precedent for future Saks OFF 5TH urban locations. The store features two floors and popular designers such as Ella Moss, BCBG, Diane Von Furstenberg, Marc by Marc Jacobs, EQUIPMENT, Calvin Klein, Versace and Prada among others. To showcase these various brands, the store invited local SF bloggers such as Britt+ Whit, Shop Sweet Things and 9to5chic to dress up the store’s mannequins.

With roughly 50% of its clientele being male, Saks OFF 5TH has ensured that the men of San Francisco are not overlooked. Approximately half of the bottom floor is dedicated to men’s suits, shoes, clothing, socks and ties. The store even offers an assortment of luxury luggage for deal-worthy prices. Future Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH stores (rumored to open in New York City and Toronto next) have a high standard to meet.

Be sure to check out this new Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH location at 901 Market Street. This is not a grand opening you want to miss!

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel – and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Epic Trips, Mini Trips and Sailing Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travellers and friends who want to explore the world together.

Epic Trips are deeply immersive 8 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and enough down time to really relax and soak it all in. Our Mini Trips are small and mighty - they squeeze all the excitement and authenticity of our longer Epic Trips into a manageable 3-5 day window. Our Sailing Trips invite you to spend a week experiencing the best of the sea and land in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.

We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm – and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
