Loehmann's is a chain of off-price department stores in the United States.
Loehmann's is best known for its "Back Room", where women interested in fashion can find designer clothes at prices lower than in department or specialty stores. In recent years, Loehmann's has expanded its offerings to include shoes, accessories, and men's products.
In 1921, Frieda Loehmann, a former department store buyer, opened her first store in a former automobile showroom on the northwest corner of Bedford Avenue and Sterling Place in Brooklyn, New York. She bought seasonal overstocks from top New York designers and sold them at bargain prices. Loehmann refused to expand her stores beyond Brooklyn and the Bronx. Soon after her death in 1962, the company went public and began to expand to a wider area.
