Saks Fifth Avenue originated as a collaborative effort between Horace Saks of Saks & Co. and Bernard Gimbel of Gimbel Brothers. The upscale department store, located on Fifth Avenue at 50th Street in New York City, opened in 1924. Adam Long Gimbel (1893-1969), cousin of Bernard and assistant to Horace, became president of Saks after Horace died in 1926. Saks soon became known for its service and high quality merchandise, including custom fashions.
