Great clothes, awful service – I am a longtime fan of the MARC by Marc Jacobs line. I was a loyal customer at the Boston store when I lived in Boston, and the staff there was always friendly, attentive and helpful. Wish I could say the same about the Bleecker store...
I've been to the store twice, both times on a less-busy weekday afternoon. Neither time was I greeted or acknowledged at any point. In fact, both times, the only attention I got was a salesguy saying "excuse me" as he pushed by with an armful of clothes. The salespeople were basically hanging out behind the counter complaining about their manager last time I was there. I felt invisible and uncomfortable, which is even more ridiculous if you consider I was wearing Marc by Marc shoes, bag and top- they should have spotted an easy commission!
Neither time did I try anything on- perhaps a salesperson would have warmed up to me then. But why bother- I can go to Barney's and see practically the exact same MbMJ collection with service that makes me want to stay and browse- and buy.
right on the marc – I admit it. I'm biased. I adore Marc Jacobs and everything he touches, from LV to his two namesake collections. Marc is definitely at home in the West Village. Twist of whimsy, edge, and glamour all rolled into one. I also live closeby and visit the store quite often. The service is fabulous and the staff is always helpful. For those who live farther away, it's definitely worth the trip, especially now that the Accessories store and the Men's store are close by.
It's all in the service – I actually prefer his signature line to the marc by mj line. But the store on Bleecker surpasses the signature store on Mercer ten-fold when it comes to friendliness and expertise. You actually feel wanted in the store, even if you're only there browsing.
Beautiful clothing with a vintage twist – Even though all of Marc Jacobs designs are just a tad too pricey for me, I must say he has the magic touch. Everything about his clothing is so unique. You will defintely agree when you visit the "Marc" store on Bleecker. The people aren't stuffy like expected and you can sense a East Village vibe when you walk in. If you want a holiday gift that radiates luxury yet uniqueness, ask for something by Marc Jacobs.
