These days, nearly every department store has an app of its own. But an entire mall at your fingertips? That’s real connectivity! Last month, Bal Harbour Shops launched its first app (for iPhone and Android), giving shoppers digital access to its more than 100 luxury retailers (Chanel, La Perla, Neiman Marcus, and so many more) and five-star restaurants (the likes of Makoto and La Goulue).
Available for download on your smartphone at balharbourshop.com/app, the free mall app (we really wish Cher had had one of these to go with her magical closet software in Clueless!) is stocked with fashion news, social photos, event listings, store contact info, and behind-the-scenes footage from Bal Harbour Magazine. It even offers users the ability to access personal service at every store and eatery. Need the perfect clutch, but don’t want to deal with holiday crowds? One tap will lead you to a Lanvin sales associate who will gladly help you locate it over the phone. Now that’s the Midas touch.
