The newest employees over at Bergdorf Goodman aren't fashionistas or luxury buyers. The megafashion retailer has hired a team of beagles to patrol the flagship stores for any signs of bedbug. After an outbreak last month at Manhattan's Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Victoria's Secret, the Fifth Avenue department store isn't taking any chances. "We haven't had any reported cases of bed bugs, but we've decided to be on the safe side," said the corporate spokesperson. "It's something our customers care about." [WWD]
