A Portland Favorite – I don't often shop for expensive clothing as I don't have to wear suits for work. I came into Mario's during their Summer discount sale just to look. The sales people were very friendly and one guided me to a perfect suit! I will definitely be back!
Decent clothing, but very expensive... – I've enjoyed my years shopping at Mario's, for the most part. I don't mind spending extra money on a shirt knowing I'll be taken care of from start to finish. However, I placed an order on a shirt (which I luckily didn't pay for when it was ordered) and I've never head back from them. Did it arrive? Did it light on fire?
Other than that, I would recommend this store to anyone seeking high-end clothing. Their tailor is INCREDIBLE.
Thanks for helping make me gorgeous – After just getting divorced, I was determined to go out and do something for myself- so I did! I went and got permanent eyeliner and eyelash extensions, and then I went shopping at here and got a a bundle of gorgeous new clothes! The people were so friendly, helpful, and honest. They even talked me out of getting a few things because they looked terrible on me. I didn't feel like they were being pushy to make a sale at all. I have gotten nothing but compliments from my new look; thanks so much Mario's!
LOVELY! – I love the Mario?s in Portland much more than the one in Seattle, especially during the popular Superbowl Sunday sale. People are nice. The women?s selection is hip and eclectic, from Alberta Ferretti to Marc Jacobs. I?ve always been treated well and love the touch of being offered San Pellegrino or wine while I?m trying on clothes.
Refined runway styles are served up at this historic downtown department store. – In Short
Since the 1930s, this store has been synonymous with sophistication. The company has combined its men's and women's collections into a luxurious, two-story clothing mecca. Shoppers here come with money to burn. The store is divided by designer. For men, it's brands like Hugo Boss, Tommy Bahama, Prada and Armani. Women's lines include Vera Wang, Alberta Ferretti, Calvin Klein, Tods and Seven jeans.
Fab Clothes – My favorite store in Portland. If you are looking for high end clothes, personalized service, and a touch of wine check this place out. The men's selection is fantastic and featured on the main floor - definitely worth checking out
Top dollar, Bottom service – They have some nice clothing but the service is horrific. I came in last weekend to buy some shirts and a suit. At first the salesmen was nice and greated me promptly asking, "can I help you find anything?" I told him I needed some shirts then he said "excuse me" and greeted another customer at the door and didn't speak to me again. I turned around and walked out.
From now on I stick to Saks and Michael Allen's.
Other reviews misleading – arios in Portland is a great shopping experience. The staff are professional and accommodating. They did not know me as others would lead you to believe is required to get service and I received great service. I came in to browse and came out with two great mens suits partly due to the intimate service I received. Marios sales professionals are discreet, courteous and HIGHLY knowledgeable, characteristics I prefer over false sales-minded flattery and fawning any day. I highly recommend Marios and will be returning.
Mario's Lacks Customer Service – If the sales people do not know you, they will not help you. They will get excited about their most valued clients, but why suffer through the awful treatment to get that status. Compared to Saks, they have more selection, but at the same time one must deal with being ignored, disrespected and not taken seriously to shop at Mario's. Spending $1500 at a time is not enough to make them remember a face, or especially a name. The people at Saks value all of their clients, and tend to remember anyone who buys just one item. Don't waste your time being talked down to when you have the money they need to stay in business.
The service makes the difference – If your tates in clothes tend to gravitate toward Europe, this shop and Saks are your only real choices (that I've found) in Portland. The prices are about the same, selection is similar but better at Marios.
The huge difference, however, is the service. Marios treats you like you are their most valued customer, even if you are only buying socks. Expensive socks, but socks nonetheless.
If I had more money, I would likely have less money because I would spend more of it here.
