Special Steps Neiman Marcus was founded in 1907 by a visionary triumvirate of retailing neophytes: Herbert Marcus; his sister, Carrie Marcus Neiman; and her husband, Al Neiman. Investing $25,000 in proceeds from the sale of their flourishing sales promotion business, they opened their first store in downtown Dallas, Texas, with the goal of providing fine ready-to-wear apparel and unsurpassed customer service. They turned a profit in their first year, in large part because of a tenet that still governs the way we do business: “It’s never a good sale for Neiman Marcus,” Herbert Marcus said, “unless it’s a good buy for the customer.”

Variations An urban myth is a modern folk tale, its origins unknown, its believability enhanced simply by the frequency with which it is repeated. Our signature chocolate chip cookie is the subject of one such myth. If you haven’t heard the story, we won’t perpetuate it here. If you have, the recipe below should serve to refute it. Copy it, print it out, pass it along to friends and family. It’s a terrific recipe. And it’s absolutely free.
