The Queen Street store's 'current layout' has menswear located mostly on the western-portion of the store's second-level as well as part of the western-portion of the store's ground-floor. Women's shoes are located at the eastern-end of the second-floor. The basement includes some home furnishings and a 5,000 square foot food retail concession called 'Foodwares Market'.

The second-floor men's store will be renovated to look similar to the sixth-floor men's store at Hudson's Bay in Downtown Vancouver. We previously reported on our approval of Vancouver's men's floor renovation. The image below is also from the Vancouver store.

All three department stores in Beverly Hills include main-floor shoe departments (Barneys, Saks and Neiman Marcus), for example. Each were buzzing with activity upon a recent visit. Seattle's flagship Nordstrom store also includes a ground-floor shoe department that does 'gangbuster' sales according to a source.
