Saks Shoe Dept. Gets ZIP Code

RSS
Saks Fifth Avenue says its new shoe department is so big and fancy it's getting its own ZIP code.
The quintessential Manhattan store is revamping its shoe department, and when it moves from the fourth floor to the eighth floor in August customers will be able to send mail to 10022-SHOE.

"We believe it's such a big move for us it deserves its own ZIP code," Saks spokeswoman Lesley Langsam Kennedy said Thursday. "We wanted to make it a destination."

The U.S. Postal Service said it worked with the retailer on the new ZIP code, which is just promotional. Only the last four characters, which aren't necessary when you're mailing something, are specialized, and they won't be read by sorting machines. The rest of the midtown neighborhood, which includes St. Patrick's Cathedral, shares 10022.
