Saks Off Fifth Coming to Metro Pointe at South Coast

Saks Off Fifth is coming to Metro Pointe at South Coast. It is located in the same plaza as Nordstrom Rack and Edward Theater, right next to Marshall.  Don't confuse this with the Saks Fifth Avenue at South Coast Plaza.  Saks Off Fifth is where you want to go to get a good deal. 

This will be the nearest outlet for us living in Irvine.  Currently, for the nearest Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, I have to drive up to Orange Outlet (previously known as The Block of Orange), which is about 15 minutes drive.  Now that it will be opening soon at South Coast, it will be less than 10 minutes drive.

UNIQLO Coming Soon to South Coast Plaza

I was at South Coast Plaza this morning for shopping. As I was walking into the mall from the structure parking, I saw this big sign:

From Tokyo to LA, UNIQLO will be joining the West Coast. They are opening several locations in LA area including at Glendale Galleria, Beverly Center and Northridge Fashion Center.

South Coast Plaza will be their only location in Orange County for now.  The anticipated opening date is September 5th, 2014.  The store at South Coast Plaza is located in front of Sears (near the Lego store).  That location used to be a hair salon, Mrs. Field's Cookie and another clothing store. 

Their online websites already selling items with sales and for now, they offer free shipping for orders $50 and up.
