Merrick Park has several Retailers here to see, to include and name a few are anchors Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom's. Quite some interesting finds here. If you are lucky enough to own a Lexus (my favorite car) it's free valet parking. The rest of the vehicles would have a fee. Some very impressive vehicles we saw were the Bentley, Ferrari and the least expensive, a Corvette (still very respectable)! A car buff and lovers dream place to visit here!
There's always something at Tiffany's. This a beautiful jewelry store and showcased perfectly!
Nordstrom's by far had the best customer service as we walked through. The staff was greeting everyone, asking how we were doing, throughout the entire store! Affordable and some great buys! Everyone was so engaged and cheerful throughout the store! A great experience!
Neiman Marcus. This upscale classy store who sells Prada, Gucci and many other big designer names, was by far the worse customer service experience, I guess we just didn't look the part, rich enough. Not one associate made eye contact, greeted us or offered any help, of course that may be just the way they are trained of course and we shouldn't take any offense. We visited the ladies, men's, shoes, cosmetics and jewelry departments, no greeting or associate interactions. No one once asked if we needed any assistance, then to make matters worse, see the clearance section below and how much it looked like a rummage sale!
Here is their clearance area!!!! Not acceptable, clothes on the floor? Off the hangers? Nothing was sized or shopable. The shirt on the front hanging went for $780.00 with 25% off? This looked like a basement no bargain rummage sale! Absolutely shocking! This was my first time there. Prada snake skin purse $4000.00, Shoes $1100.00, wallets at $850.00. All presented very nicely in small stand alone shops inside the store but their clearance section was a customers nightmare. Customer service throughout the store was non existent! Amazed, just amazed.
Owner Rui Martin and good friend of John Colenzo. Rui is 100% about customer service, he greets and treats everyone like his own family. The staff was so accommodating. The food superb. You will not find a better dining experience with this kind of hospitality, thank you Rui!
This was a delicious very impressive appetizer called Chourico Assado (grilled Portuguese Sausage)
This came in a ceramic pig to the table lit up in flames! Awesome presentation!
