No Saks in Riyadh?

I was on the Saks website a few days ago using their store locator and was presented with this initial page. I don’t know about you, but I don’t remember there being a country called “Saudi Arabia” where Ontario is.

What’s weirder is that if you’re curious, as I am, how many Boston Store locations there are in Saudi Arabia… your curiosity will continue. There are no store listings for the entire country. So what gives?

A bi-product of continental drift?

That's cute.

Although I don't recall Hawaii being in the middle of Mexico, either. ;-)

Odd that they would have a store in Saudi Arabia when they have close, but not complete, coverage of the US.

did you use the "contact us" and ask them why Saudi Arabia was listed when they don't even have a store?

I suppose they could've included plenty of other countries in which 0 stores can be found. Why only Saudi?

That was so painful to read.

Maybe it is like an internet store and people in Boston go on the website, even though the site owner lives in saudi arabia.

What is this then?
