Yes, the flagship is in Dallas, but NMs largest store is actually in San Francisco.

the only downside to SF is the cost of living... I see no other downsides to the Bay Area. the area is absolutely beautiful even if you don't choose to live in the city... But, you pay for what you get, just like NYC. To me the closest things that come to nyc feel is sf and chicago. If you aren't into doing cultured stuff and quality stuff... then yeah, you aren't gonna like any big urban city like these, but if you are, you'll enjoy it. I personally am the type to be out all day long doing stuff and really only like to come home to sleep... If you are like this you'll probably think you can do more in a week than you can living in a small town somewhere in half a year.

I kinda knew that because the flaghip in Dallas is small.Here are more pictures and brief history.

Herbert Marcus, his sister, Carrie Marcus Neiman, and her husband, Abraham (Al) Neiman founded Neiman Marcus in 1907. Before founding the store, Herbert Marcus was a buyer for Sanger Brothers, and Carrie was an assistant buyer for A. Harris & Company. The renowned department store's flagship location sits on Ervay Street between Main and Commerce. The structure has been expanded both horizontally and vertically many times. The original 4 story 1914 building sits on the southwest corner of Main and Ervay. In 1927, it was expanded with a 4 story addition to the south, extending the full block along Ervay. The next addition, matching the style of the first two phases, placed 2 floors on top of the buildings. If you look carefully, you can see this addition is slightly less detailed. Another floor was added in a later expansion that was similar to the original, but even less detailed than the previous one. In the 1940's and 1950's, Neiman Marcus expanded horizontally to the west several times. These additions effectively doubled the size of the store, but did not not match the building's architectural style. The last major addition put two floors on top of all of the buildings, giving the department store a total height of 9 stories. This addition looked slightly different than the previous 1940's addition, but was similar in style. The part that was built over the eastern half of the building only made a slight gesture to the ornamented lower floors with a cornice, but did not attempt to replicate the window pattern or the ornamental stone work. This last addition was constructed around 1970.







How it orignally looked in 1917

Second location in Downtown Dallas
