portland: the store

© giese - neiman-marcus flagship store plaque 

founded by diana kim, stand up comedy is a quirky emporium in portland with a sharply curated range of men's and women's apparel, bags, accessories, fragrances and books for shoppers with an adventurous taste level. but next to luring the city's in-the-know crowd to its doorstep through these offerings, the shop also knows how to entertain them with equally tantalizing events. the next one coming up is an in-store screening of frederick wiseman's intriguing documentary the store [1983] on sat - nov 23 [12am, 2pm and 4pm]. the documentaryis about the prestigious neiman-marcus flagship store and corporate headquarters in dallas and the reeling and dealing of its retail operations during the lucrative holiday season. mind you, snacks will be served as you watch the capitalist plot unfold on screen. location: 811 east burnside street [lower burnside].
