Saks Fifth Avenue
Known for their luxury clothing and accessories, Saks Fifth Avenue is the one of the top high-end retailers.
They also offer fur services!
Saks Fifth Avenue calls their variety of fur services their “Fur Salon” and you can take in any fur, no matter where you got it.
If you need your antique fur conditioned, take it to Saks. If you need a brand new fur fixed after a tear, take it to Saks. They offer a pretty comprehensive list of ways you can make your fur your favorite accessory in the closet.
Storage: If for whatever reason, you need your fur stored in an ideal environment, Saks will take your fur in and keep it in their climate-controlled vaults.
Cleaning: You know you can’t just throw your real fur jacket in the washer and dryer. So, you’ll need a professional to take care of it for you. Saks offers conditioning services that will help your fur last longer.
Repairs: Things happen. Maybe you spilled some chardonnay on your jacket or you accidentally tore it on the subway. Whatever it is, Saks provides repair services to get your coat back in wearing condition.
Trade-in: Obviously, owning and caring for a fur is expensive. Along with finding promo codes for Saks Fifth Avenue, you can also receive a discount on a fur coat if you trade in your old one. If Saks accepts your gently used fur coat, they will offer a deal on any new fur items.
Restyle: Maybe you have a fur jacket and you want to make it into a vest. You can! From tailoring to a whole new reimagined piece, Saks will help you recreate your fur jacket.
Create from scratch: Have an idea for a fur jacket in mind? Saks will work with you in building a whole new fur coat. Get the coat of your dreams that’s made specifically for you.
Everyone knows Macy’s is one of the most dependable department store that’s been around for as long as anybody can remember. This is why their fur services are trustworthy.
Macy’s offers services similar to Saks Fifth Avenue. Simply find a location on their fur services page and take yours in to the experts for whatever you need.
Storage: Keep your fancy fur in a stored vault that’s climate-controlled and safe. During hotter months, you’re not going to be wearing your fur. This is why storing it somewhere safe is a great way to avoid dust and anything else that slowly breaks down the quality of your fur.
Cleaning: Pamper your fur by taking it to Macy’s for a good clean. This will elongate the life of your jacket and keep fur soft and lovely instead of turning into that stiff, dusty fur jacket you might see at a bad consignment shop.
Repair: If you need to fix a torn seam or missing button, Macy’s will be there for your repair and even a minor alteration.
Trade-in: If you want a totally new fur, bring your old fur jacket in for a discount on your new purchase.
Restyle: Sometimes certain trends go out of style. It’s not the coat’s fault! Instead of throwing out the whole fur, take it in and give it a makeover. Update your style by taking out the shoulder pads, shortening the arms, trim the fur, and more. Macy’s will help you rediscover your favorite fur.
Silk Glow: Macy’s offers a special service that protects the fur from everyday elements. It’s a “glazing process” that puts a protective layer on your jacket and helps keep dust, dirt, and grime from sticking.
Vectra: Another special service is Vectra, a lining protector that will make tears and unravelling less likely.
Monogramming: If there’s a place on your fur where you’d like to get a monogram, Macy’s can help you personalize your fur jacket with that service.
Neiman Marcus sells the cutest stuff. But did you know they also offer fur services?
The high-end retailer offers storage, conditioning and more for your fur coat.
Storage: If you need storing, Neiman Marcus will keep it for you in a temperature and humidity controlled environment. This not only helps keep the fur nice, but the leather as well. One thing Neiman Marcus points out is light. Light can unexpectedly ruin furs, so keep it in a vault that is kept dark at all times. Not only that, it keeps it from insects like moths from creating damage. They fully inspect your garment and will make complimentary repairs to help preserve your jacket.
Cleaning & Conditioning: According to Neiman Marcus, furs should be conditioned once a year at least. This keeps them looking nice and feeling soft. The department store will make minor repairs that you don’t have to pay for before they start the conditioning process that is done carefully by hand.
Repairs & Restyles: Never let a tear or scuff in your fur jacket sit untaken care of. That minor damage can turn into a larger (and more expensive) issue down the road. Nip it in the bud by letting an expert care for it. If you’re looking for a modification on your out-of-date or needing-a-change jacket, Neiman Marcus can work with you to style your coat for a new look. They can even turn it into “something unexpected” like a stuffed teddy bear or earmuffs. Fun!
There must be a Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, or Neiman Marcus near you somewhere, so choose one of these helpful, sometimes cost-effective department stores and take your fur in for treatment.
Don’t let your family heirloom, antique, or expensive fur fall apart. A fur is a special item in your wardrobe that needs to be continually cared for by you.
