Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH will celebrate the grand reopening of its Opry Mills store with several events this week.

The community is invited to attend a red carpet experience from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, when a photographer will be on hand to capture the guests as they enter the store.

Throughout the opening weekend, all customers will receive a VIP Savings Pass with five opportunities to save, and they will also be eligible for FastCash by signing up for the Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH MORE! Rewards loyalty program.

This program offers weekly discounts, sales and promotions on merchandise throughout the store.

“We are excited about Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH’s return to Nashville and the Opry Mills Shopping Center,” said Robert Wallstrom, president of Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH. “We look forward to working with many familiar and new faces as we continue to bring Nashville the latest fashion at the best prices.”

The store will be modeled in Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH’s innovative “luxury in a loft” store design, according to a press release.

Since its debut in 2008, the innovative layout has been well received and set a new standard in outlet shopping. This design maximizes efficiency and flexibility, enabling easy changes in the general layout.

The store will be bright, uncluttered, with no hard aisles and one consistent hard-surface floor throughout. All fixtures will be on casters, ensuring ease in movement, and all hardware will be interchangeable between fixtures.

A distinctive assortment of brands will be available at outlet prices in the remodeled store, including women’s and men’s apparel, fine jewelry, handbags, shoes, and children’s collections.

For spring, women will find both designer and contemporary merchandise, from brands such as Ralph Lauren, St. John and Escada.

Men can shop spring sportswear from designers such as John Varvatos, Penguin, Vince, James Perse, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors, or opt for sleek tailoring by Saks Fifth Avenue, Calvin Klein, Hickey Freeman and Versace.

The Internal Revenue Service is reminding taxpayers who are purposely waiting until the last-minute to file and pay that although they can easily postpone paying, they are less likely to make mistakes if they file now, before the April rush.

The IRS estimates that nearly 690,000 Tennesseans waited until April to file last year, many of whom wanted to hold on to their money until the very last minute.

“Taxpayers can e-file right now and authorize a direct-debit payment for the April 17 deadline,” spokesman Dan Boone said in an IRS press release. “That way, they avoid the April rush, keep their money until the last minute, and get the benefits of e-filing.”

E-filing benefits include a lower error rate and faster processing than with paper returns, along with confirmation of receipt by the IRS.

Last-minute filers often make the most mistakes, Boone said, but e-filing helps eliminate common errors.

Boone also reminded filers that e-filing is secure and that anyone can e-file free on the IRS website, IRS.gov, using the Free File program.

Filers with incomes of $57,000 or less can use brand-name, tax software for free, but all are eligible to use the Fillable Forms option.

Filers who need help with their taxes can visit one of about 170 free tax help sites in 53 Tennessee counties. The sites are staffed by trained volunteers who will prepare and e-file returns for filers whose household income was less than $50,000 or who are age 60 or older.

Taxpayers can call the IRS at 1-800-906-9887 to find the closest help site.
