There's some major movin' and shakin' happening at Saks on Michigan Avenue. From what we hear, things are getting crazay at the Saks Women's store. Apparently the store is trying to find a way to quietly burrow through the back of the space (near the jewelry) to create an express elevator up to the seventh floor. Why to the seventh floor?
