If you are a Bargain Hunter this is your place. Filene's Basement has been around forever. This store is a basement giant on discount clothing for all. You can find clothing for men, women and kids. They also have shoes, handbags, home goods, jewelry, and accessories. All designer brands at an unbelievably marked down price. Yes you are getting last season??s goods but you can be sure that you are purchasing quality items. This location embarks all of a street block, it is huge. Located in a prime location in the Upper West Side it is very convenient to get to. Though the staff is friendly, they can be a little more knowledgeable about the merchandise they sell and represent.
Check out their website, there is a fan club that you can become a member of, totally free, and get extra discounts from the already reduced prices.

A walk through Filene??s Basement is like a walk down 5th Avenue because everywhere you look, you??ll see the same exclusive designer and prestigious store names you??d see in New York, Paris, London and Milan. But there??s one big difference??at the Basement, you??ll experience the thrill of their unbelievable prices.

One problem with Filene??s is that it is a MESS. The bargains are there, but you have to sort through a lot of junk to find them. I shop at Filene??s because of the styles and prices, but I always feel like I need a shower when I??m finished. Also, the staff??s complete unwillingness to help is very unsettling.

However, their buyers do shop for the best deals at the finest design houses in Europe, choosing the latest fashion trends, fabrics and colors for the sophisticated, ?price-savvy Basement customer.

You can shop for women, men, kids, and home with all the fine accessories to complete a wardrobe always at 30-60% off their original department & specialty store prices.

Pros: Cheap, Designer discounted, Shoes
Cons: Messy, Disorganized, Salespeople rude and unhelpful.

The original Filene's basement was literally the basement of the famed Boston department store where you had to grab and claw your way through unmarked bins in hopes of finding a gem. Clothes shopping as contact sport. This Manhattan store retains some of that attitude, though it is meant to be more civilized. Most of the stuff is pretty downscale in quality, and the service is inefficient and often rude. But for basic stuff like socks or panty hose, this place has very cheap prices.

Filene's Basement is great if you're in a rush to buy clothes, shoes, socks etc all in the space of say, 20 minutes.

The chick at the register when I went to pay was really nasty to me and made me walk through the velvet ropes even though there was no line.

Service definitely sucked.

Some days you can't hold on one arm all the steals you find at Filene's. Some days you can't count on one hand the items you'd bother to try on. It also matters which store you visit -- I most recommend the new one in Union Square, which tends to have the widest selection and the best items.

You can find lots and lots of bargains at Filene's Basement. You have to be prepared to search through many racks of clothing, but you will be rewarded for your time with many good finds. They have some well made clothing for very reasonable prices. They also carry a nice line of accessories including some terriffic handbags. You can never have enough handbags and at these prices you won't feel ashamed that you've gone overboard and bought a few too many.

Filenes has a tremendous assortment of clothing for everyone. In an expensive town like New York it's nice to find a place where you can get a lot of clothes at reasonable prices.

Filene's Basement is appropriately named. You have to sift through racks to find what you might be looking for, but sometimes it is worth it. I have found some good things in there. There aren't many staff members on the floor, so you are on your own. This store is similiar to TJ Maxx.
