Why can’t department stores spin off specialized stores from the mothership and make them work? Saks closing its womens-only store in lower Manhattan is just the latest example of retailers from this channel who can’t seem to make it work. Add Macy’s, Bloomingdales and others to this list which seems to be a specialty of retailers who come from the department store world.

Here’s my take from Forbes.com:
