Within the Hudson Yards development in New York City, a Neiman Marcus megastore is opening—and the sprawling luxury retail space offers consumers an experience over five floors. On the first floor of the store, consumers will find a kitchen with live demonstrations, a bar and Neiman Marcus Live, a space that can accommodate 100 people for various kinds of gatherings and panel discussions.
Technology plays a large part in the Neiman Marcus megastore, including the fitting rooms. At the store's smart fitting rooms, shoppers are able to check in and use a system to request new items, sizes and signal their readiness to check out. In the future, this smart fitting room experience has the potential to be updated with self-checkout or recommendation technologies.
