This new Bloomingdale’s in Virginia shows how the department store is scaling down to make the shopping experience more’convenient’

Bloomingdale's is embracing its iconic nickname with a store called Bloomie's set to open in August. The Fairfax, Virginia, location will be one-tenth the size of the average Bloomingdale's store. The company says the smaller size is meant to create a "convenient," "fresh and casual" experience. See more stories on Insider's business page. Bloomingdale's is flouting the idea that bigger is better with its latest store, which is a small fraction of its typical store size. www.businessinsider.com
