Virginia Barnett heads straight to Neiman Marcus whenever the urge arises to buy a $500 Ferragamo bag for herself or a $2,500 Prada suit for her boyfriend. But instead of driving to the store near her home in Fort Worth, Texas, Barnett logs on to the Internet, checks out the Web site www.neimanmarcus.com and e-mails her online personal shopper David Isaacs to make her purchase. Barnett, 26, said she doesn't miss the perks that usually draw a customer to Neiman Marcus -- an attentive sales assistant stroking her ego and tending to her every shopping need.

NEW YORK -- "Will this be used for Beyonce's hair?" asks Sandra Magsamen. She fingers a strand of crystal beading at Spaeth Designs, a New York company that creates lavish decorations for department stores. Surrounding her are dozens of carpenters, painters and electricians all busily working to transform her illustrated children's book, The Gift (Glitterati Books, 2003), into holiday windows for Saks Fifth Avenue. This is a perilous enterprise, as the original magic can easily be lost in the new version.

Owings Mills mall was once the airy, marbled haven for the Baltimore shopper with $300 to drop, but today it is being "repositioned," in the words of its owners, to reflect the needs of the people who work and live in the office buildings and townhouses sprouting from the grassy hills around it.J. C. Penney replacing Saks Fifth Avenue; Sunglass Hut International replacing Godiva Chocolates; Let's Talk Cellular replacing Williams-Sonoma.Make no mistake, Owings Mills is going downscale.But not, mall owners hope, so downscale that most of Baltimore won't feel comfortable shopping there.

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. -- It is a Saturday afternoon in early November, and a man, a deliberate and rational man, sits at his kitchen table and writes a letter. The words come easily, the transcription of thoughts honed for weeks. "You don't know me, but I work for the Port Authority, and, like you, I live in Garden City. I didn't know your wife, but I saw her on the train ... "There is a strange sense of connection I feel ... and I can't escape that." There had been so much more to say, it seemed, several weeks earlier, on the day the deaths of strangers had overwhelmed him, and, unexpectedly, her death in particular.

Most of the long-struggling Owings Mills Mall will be torn down starting in 2013 to make room for a $65 million retail development, a move that Baltimore County officials hope will complement other burgeoning projects in an area targeted for growth. Mall owner General Growth Properties will work with Kimco Realty to redevelop and "de-mall" the 1-million-square-foot site — a move that mirrors the remaking of a shopping area in Hunt Valley. Developers said Thursday that they did not know how much of the mall they would demolish, but they expect anchor stores Macy's and JC Penney, as well as the AMC movie theater, to stay.
