Bargain shoppers can head back to Union Square—which used to be home to Filene’s Basement—with the opening of this discount giant’s second Manhattan location (the first is in Chelsea). The tri-level, 92,000-square-foot space is filled with current-season designer duds marked up to 65 percent off department-store prices. Gentlemen looking to stock up on basics can nab Ben Sherman trench coats ($100) and Original Penguin V-neck sweaters ($25), while ladies looking for a steal can pick up Free People chiffon dresses ($70) and Elizabeth and James leather booties ($180). For the home, we spotted seven-piece cookware sets ($20) and Vera Wang Home coverlets ($100). There’s even a beauty section, featuring OPI nail polish and CoverGirl foundations ($7 each).
