Bal Harbour Shops is an upscale, open-air shopping mall in Bal Harbour, a wealthy suburb of Miami Beach, Florida, known internationally for its luxury retail.
In 1965, when owner/developer Stanley Whitman opened Florida’s first exclusive, high-fashion shopping center on what had been the site of a World War II army barracks, retail experts scoffed at Bal Harbour Shops’ upscale store mix.
Bal Harbour Shops’ early success was largely due to Whitman’s resolve in persuading Neiman Marcus, in 1971, to open its first specialty department store outside its native Texas and in luring designer boutiques that previously could only be found along the Champs-Elysées in Paris or on New York City’s Fifth Avenue. Attracted by the immediate success of Neiman Marcus, in 1976, Saks Fifth Avenue became Bal Harbour Shops’ second anchor store and Bal Harbour Shops became the very place in the world that Neiman and Saks would both call home.
