7. There used to be White Plains location

Bergdorf Goodman's 2020 department store holiday windows
The Bergdorf Goodman store in Westchester was not as popular as the Fifth Avenue one.

In 1972, Andrew Goodman sold Bergdorf Goodman to Broadway-Hale Stores, which would become Carter Hawley Hale Stores. CHH considered building branch locations, and they went through with the construction of one in White Plains, in 1972. However, this location was short-lived, since it did not perform nearly as well as the Fifth Avenue location, perhaps because Westchester clientele were not as into the lavish clothes selection.

The company hired Dawn Mello in 1975 as vice president of fashion to help rebrand the store, although even her efforts could not revitalize the Westchester location. After her brief stint at Gucci, she returned to Bergdorf Goodman as president of the company, where she further helped revive the brand. This location eventually became a Neiman Marcus branch in 1981, and it is still open today (Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman are part of the same company).
