Bloomingdale's has opened its first location in the state of Hawaii, at Ala Moana Center in Honolulu.

The three-level, 165,000-sq. ft. store is designed to offer a slice of New York City while also capturing the essence of Hawaii and its culture. From louvered wood panels to walls outfitted in graphic palm frond prints and birds-of-paradise motifs, the store pays homage to the Honolulu locale. The Hawaiian motifs are combined with Bloomingdale’s iconic aesthetic, including its signature black and white décor and polished concrete floors.

Technology is utilized throughout the space to enhance the overall shopping environment. “Smart” fitting rooms are equipped with wall-mounted tablets that allow customers to view product availability and communicate with associates. The mirrors are equipped with touch-screen options that let customers adjust the lighting to an optimal level for trying on the latest fashions. And the fitting room areas have communal tables with charging stations where guests can mingle and reboot.

The new store also features such amenities as a visitors center on the main floor catering to international and domestic shoppers, and Bloomingdale's first limited-access VIP lounge offering such additional services as light foods & beverage, Bluetooth printer and iPads, a charging station, a private restroom, and more.
