Saks to Add Casino to Its Premises
Big casino brands have been applying for a license to put a casino at the heart of New York. But there’s still no telling who the chosen 3 brands will be. However, New York might still be getting a casino from another brand.
Saks has no ties to the casino industry, but it’s looking to spice things up and turn the upper floors into a casino. But this won’t be just any kind of casino, it’s going to be a high-end casino that will take Saks customers to the next level.
Manhattan Could Be Getting a Casino
As mentioned before, Saks is a brand that has no ties to the casino industry. It’s a retail brand that sells high-quality clothes from designer brands. It’s got a spot on Fifth Avenue and has been a household name for decades.
This is why the owners can afford the kind of spicing up that they have in mind. The project has been developing for some time and it’s now in the final stages. In other words, they’re looking to upgrade their Manhattan location with a high-end casino that they’re looking to build into the upper floors.
Their customers are always looking for the ultimate luxurious experience in Manhattan which is why they’re visiting this store. The casino will help them take that experience to the next level as only a select few will be able to enter it. The State Gaming Board will need to approve a license before the project starts taking shape.
If it does, then the officials behind Saks will have a lot of work on their hands and will need to turn to the community when it comes to building the project. The community will supply the workforce for this endeavor and when the project is completed then it will be time for the community to play an important role again.
That’s because the casino will need staff and the community will have an influx of jobs to fill. Naturally, the state will get its share in taxes and revenue. But if the license isn’t approved then Saks will need to find another way to upgrade its premises or it can wait for another time so its officials can apply for a new license.
Either way, this is a pretty bold project that Saks is looking to make happen. Usually, it’s a casino brand that’s looking to build a new casino, but Saks is taking all big brands by surprise as it’s looking to build its own casino on the upper floors. This might be the only case of a retail brand looking to build a casino which is why it might just make it.
Saks is a name that isn’t associated with the casino industry which is why it’s strange that it’s looking to upgrade its premises with a casino. The casino is going to be high-end and it will be up to the community and the state’s gaming board to make it happen.
