Partner Spotlight: Saks Fifth Avenue
Women's Fund is grateful for a number of corporate Partners helping keep our day-to-day operations moving. Each month, we will be featuring a corporate Partner. This month we are spotlighting Saks Fifth Avenue. As a corporate Partner, Saks has contributed over $20,500 since 2010.
Saks Fifth Avenue was founded by Horace Saks and Bernard Gimbel, who operated independent retail stores in New York, and decided to partner and develop a store promoting fashionable, gracious living. The first store was opened 87 years ago, in September 1924, on upper Fifth Avenue in New York City. Over the rest of the twentieth century through present, Saks grew nationwide, to 46 stores in 22 states today. This retail establishment is known for its selling services and merchandise offerings, utilizing the best of European and American designers for men and women.
Saks employs 15,000 people nationwide and operates a local Indianapolis store at Keystone at the Crossing. Customers may also shop Saks online at saks.com, which offers an "enhanced, personal online shopping experience." Customers can shop by "a distinct look, specific designer, or indvidual item" (saks.com). Saks Fifth Avenue is a part of Saks Incorporated (SKS), which operates Saks Fifth Avenue, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH and Saks Direct.
Women's Fund is appreciative of Saks Fifth Avenue Indianapolis' generous support as a corporate Partner, and we are particularly grateful for their efforts to offer employment opportunities in our community, which supports our focus on insufficient income.
