This is the most vibrant of a classy breed of department store that appears to be fading from the scene. Established in 1866, Ogilvy has been at this location since 1912. A bagpiper still announces the noon hour and special events, and glowing chandeliers and wide aisles enhance the shopping experience. Ogilvy has always had a reputation for quality merchandise and now contains more than 50 boutiques, including such high-profile purveyors as Louis Vuitton, Anne Klein, Burberry, Aquascutum, and Jones New York. It's also known for its eagerly awaited Christmas windows. The basement-level Café Romy has quality sandwiches, salads, and desserts.
