Galleria Department Store joins with Bergdorf GoodmanGalleria Department Store said yesterday it has signed an exclusive partnership with Bergdorf Goodman, a high-end department store in New York. The partnership will allow Galleria’s VIP customers to receive luxury services at the U.S. department store, and vice versa. For example, Galleria VIP customers will be able to use Bergdorf Goodman-affiliated hotels at discounted prices, just like Bergdorf Goodman’s VIPs. Both department stores’ high-end customers can also use VIP lounges in Seoul and New York.
Yoo Je-sik, head of Galleria Luxury Hall in Apgujeong-dong, southern Seoul, said that the partnership will boost its presence in America.
“The partnership will help Galleria extend its customer base,” the head said. “Also, the achievement proves that Galleria’s VIP service is highly regarded inside and outside of Korea.”
Local department stores have recently struck a series of service exchange partnerships. Lotte Department Store went into a similar partnership with Macy’s in the United States and Galeries Lafayette in France.
