Observations On Bally's Grand Bazaar Shops

Where: 89109
April 24, 2015 at 2:37 PM | by | Comments (9)

The long walk to the Strip entrance of Bally's has disappeared behind the recently(ish) opened Grand Bazaar Shops that nearly extend to Las Vegas Boulevard now. The first shops actually opened February 26, but it was a recent visit to Bellagio that spurred us to finally swing by the outdoor retail and dining shops.

Our first observation of the shops from across the street at Bellagio was how effective the Swarovski crystal starburst was at drawing our attention to the area in front of Bally's when lit at night. Our second was how easy getting there was. If Tiffany & Co., Harry Winston and Gucci are outside your budget these more wallet-friendly shops are a short walk over and down the pedestrian bridge connecting Bellagio and Bally's.

There's less than a month before Las Vegas North Premium Outlets in downtown Vegas debuts an expansion set to bring dozens of new brands to the open-air mall.

Shoppers should mark Thursday, May 14 as the day their lives will change forever. Okay, maybe it's not all that dramatic -- okay, it's not dramatic at all -- but that date is when you'll find savings on merchandise from close to 40 new retailers.

The Market Brings More Options For Downtown Visitors

Where: 611 East Fremont Street [map], 89101

Downtown Las Vegas continues to evolve as a work/play/live community. In the past few years, we’ve witnessed the transformation of Fremont East from a depressed area into a thriving neighborhood and nightspot. Closed storefronts and empty lots have been reclaimed by a variety of unique shops and restaurants as well as a mall made of shipping containers. The one thing lacking had been a grocery store. That changed last October with the opening of The Market.

What is Guerlain? What is this thing being built right at the parking garage entrance into Bellagio with an ornate bee-adorned golden bottle printed on the plywood? Is it liquor? Honey? No, it is perfume and makeup, and some of the fanciest of both in the world.

A few savvy VegasChatter readers have already been eagerly awaiting it. Now, the official Town Square Twitter feed has spoken: Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th will relocate from the Las Vegas Premium Outlets South to Town Square March 12. If you’ve never been to the outlet version of Saks, think Nordstrom Rack, but a tad fancier and a tad pricier, at least IMO.

VOM FASS Opens In The Grand Canal Shoppes (So, What is a VOM FASS?)

Where: 3377 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109

An interesting trend for some higher-end shopping areas around the country are "bottle it yourself" stores. Most sell different flavors of oil and vinegar and sometimes alcohol, but too many are dressed-up, get-rich-quick schemes that buy a couple industrial barrels of the base ingredient and inject artificial lab-grown "aromas" into them. This is very similar to the way certain vodka brands have every meme flavor under the sun (lol at bacon, maple, cotton candy, and bourbon flavored vodka) and generally has the same effect. However, it would appear these are all pale imitations of other enterprises like VOM FASS.

Gilt Warehouse Sale Coming To The LINQ

You had one of two reactions from reading this headline. You either had no idea what a Gilt was and wanted to find out or you squee'd with excitement.

If you were the former, Gilt is a members-only online shopping site that provides discounts on a variety of mostly high-end brands. For instance, a Lanvin clutch could retail for $1,390, but you'd find it on Gilt for $999. If Target is to Walmart than Gilt is to Zappos, or thereabouts.

A New Opening Timeline For TI's CVS

Photo from October.

After a once planned debut of last September and a new target month of November that came and went, Treasure Island's self-dubbed retail-tainment center is still an empty shell today.

CVS has been the only announced tenant for the three-story addition. It will eventually cover the entire ground floor of the building, sprawling some 12,000-15,000 (figures have varied) square feet.
