We were pretty psyched to hear that Nordstrom Rack was bringing their bargain-hunter friendly storefront to Penn Quarter, because who doesn’t love a good discount on designer goods? But now the neighborhood is getting double the deals with the opening of a Saks Off Fifth.

The doors to the 33,000-square-foot store opened September 22 with over 800 brands at up to a 70 percent discount. Apparently there’s an appetite in the region for deal shoppers, as according to Saks Off Fifth’s president, Jonathan Greller, there’s plans in the works for two more Saks Off Fifth stores to open in the area before the end of the year.

“We’re thrilled to open in the nation’s capital and bring our ‘thrill-of-the-hunt’ experience to D.C. shoppers,” said Greller in a press release. “We believe strongly in this market—this opening comes on the heels of our new Fairfax and Springfield, VA locations, and we have two additional stores in the region opening next month.”  

Saks Off Fifth is now open at District Center, 555 12th Street, NW, and it is slated to be joined by bargain hunting neighbor, Nordstrom Rack, on October 27. Take a peek inside before you visit in person in the photos below.
