Bloomingdale’s is pleased to announce that Todd Buntin has been appointed Trade Area Vice President for Chicago / General Manager for the North Michigan and Medinah stores.
Todd joined Bloomingdale’s in May 2017 as the General Manager for South Coast Plaza. South Coast Plaza is a key store for the company, and had a strong increase of sales in 2017. Todd developed and implemented plans to improve the flagship environment and store standards that ultimately lead to comeback wins in both sales and service for 2017. Along with strong sales and service increases, he diversified brand assortment with the merchant team and launched a rotating Beauty & Fragrance pop-up shop which increased volume. Before joining Bloomingdale’s, Todd had a 20+ year career at Nordstrom.
“I am very excited about this new chapter in my career,” said Todd Buntin. “I’m excited to return to Chicago after 14 years and eager to reacquaint myself with the Magnificent Mile and Old Orchard customer and how they like to be served. Our hope is that we can make continual improvements in service, product and experience to continue earning the trust and loyalty of the Chicago shopper.”
“On my most recent trip to the store, I was driving down Lake Shore Drive after having arrived at Midway Airport. The moment the car turned the corner by Soldier Field and I saw the skyline and the lake, I remembered that great feeling I used to get and felt like I was home.”
