The highly anticipated opening went as scheduled on Thursday, September 28th. To celebrate, Bloomingdale?s will underwrite a gala cocktail reception to benefit clinical and research programs at the University of California, San Francisco Children?s Hospital. All ticket proceeds plus a portion of sales made that evening will be donated to the organization.
Says Michael Gould, Chairman and CEO of Bloomingdale?s, ?The opportunity to open a store in a city as beautiful and sophisticated as San Francisco is an enormously exciting venture for us. We believe we have designed a store that will provide the ultimate shopping experience for the Bay Area.?
