What did they look like inside? Was it comparable to a Dillard's in luxury? Any details would be great.

I recall going to one on Post Oak just North of the Galleria that was a stand alone store, iirc. That was when I was in Middle School back in the early/mid 1980s. We went there a couple of times to get nice things for special events. I can't remember much in the way of details, but it was a small store that was dark and quiet inside. Definitely a step up from a Dillards or Macy's etc, but not Neiman's, if that makes any sense.

Never went in one, but my impression was that they were nicer than Dillards/Macy's, like Ag says above.

So curious why you are asking?

Dillard’s is more luxurious, my goto store is the Dillard’s at the West Oaks mall

That Dillard's is a clearance outlet.

Sakowitz was definitely upscale, but not at Neiman's level. I went to the one in Town & Country (stand-alone) several times when I was growing up. I'd say it was our local version of Nordstrom's, but not as wide of merchandise selection.

I remember the Town & Country store had octagonal wavy-textured tiles on the floor.
