Now close on Sundays so my wife can stay home and cook a meal for the family. :) But really, Capitalism has destroyed the family unit. People need to spend less time shopping and more time together with the family.

Needless Markup, who cares.
Get a life, that doesn't mean shopping until you drop, being born to shop, supporting our 'friends' in China, OPEC, etc, etc.
America - WAKE UP, the ratio of cars to people in the United States is 100 TIMES greater than it is in China and we use 25% of the world's oil - despite having less than 5% of the world's population.
You think this can be sustained? Dream on!
A fool and their monies are soon parted, so, what kind of 'fool' are you?

The retail sector has big problems these days....except for Wal-Mart of course. They'd probably keep their stores open 24-7 if they could. But everyone else might be open 12:00-4:00 someday the way it is going.

I blame Al Gore, the inventor of the internet and the leader of the global warming parade. Since he invented the internet the brick and mortar stores have dropped like flies and since he educated us on global warming the Chicago winters have been Hell and the summers have been cooler than ever.

Perhaps he needs to research why so many people will be out of work in the coming years so we can get the reverse to happen with that.

This is a sign of the economic times. I would not be surprised to see some of the bigger chains such as J.C Penney and Macys cut their hours too.

Neiman's is suffering in the retail industry and their customers the high end don't shop all hours like peons do. I feel bad for the associates who will have their hours cut in response to the earlier store clsoings. I would not be surprised if Sears closes earlier in someof their stores. I do not know how they can manage to keep oak Brook open, even on a Saturday afternoon that store is very slow

They should probably close it down altogether. All these luxury brand items are way overpriced anyways. They get their stuff made in the third world for low cost and mark it up so high. I would be very happy if they go bankrupt. I pray all the luxury brand where people pay for the name and not the quality should close down.

One of the problems with this store has always been that it deals with an older monied demographic so price is not an object.( at least it did not used to be a object.) Their merchandise is old fashioned, over priced, out of style,and dare I say it
"DULL." Stuff my grandmother would look at. Now, Field's always had up to the minute style, price, and choice. That's what I miss.
So go close all the Neiman stores, won't bother me a bit.

My Fiance is an associate at Niemans on Mich Ave. I can assure you they have plenty of younger clientele and up to date fashions, but before you all chuckle at closing down "needless mark up" be aware that most of the people who work there, do not shop there, and also have bills, mortgage payements etc. like the rest of you living in glass houses, making ridiculous posts

Cuckoo!

What a stupid spin....ok lets spin it this way.

We should all thank people like 'Good News' whose love of Socialism has destroyed this country because responsibled hardworking moms and dads both have to leave the home to support 'Good News' utopian dream of hanging out all life with the family on other taxpayers dime.

Amazing how the leftist always rush to any press about the bad economy to blame Bush.

This is 'Obamas' economy and it is a terrible one, far worse than under Bush. Now we have massive debt and idiots trying to come up with new taxes on a tanking economy. What they will do with their 'new taxes' is push more and more people over the edge eventually destroying the tax base...something idiots like you cannot figure out.

Here is reality, there is NOT an endless supply of tax dollars. There is NO such thing as free living for everybody. Put away your liberal hopium and face the reality that people need to work to live.

Samara, I don't understand your post. Who cares where people shop? If someone can afford to and wants to pay high prices, so be it. Why such hatred for Neiman? Did they do something wrong or you just jealous? A lot of larger issues facing us today versus where one shops

I don't think the posts are ridiculous; I think they reflect the current state of mind. Money is tight for all of us and the high priced "junque" is laughable. One of my kids works at Bloomies while attending college and all the associates (read sales people) chuckle at the tremendous markup on China imports and would not be caught on the street in some of the getups. Of course they don't shop/buy there except on employee triple mark down final sale items. And you are right they all have bills and families too.
Thing is, some high end stores like Nordstrom stay up on top. At least one gets actual value for the dollar.
