BEAGLE BUG BRIGADE: After last month’s bed bug infestations at Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch and Victoria’s Secret in Manhattan, Bergdorf Goodman is taking no chances. A team of beagles is periodically patrolling the premises at Bergdorf’s women’s and men’s stores on Fifth Avenue, and they’re trained to sniff out the creepy crawlers. “We haven’t had any reported cases of bed bugs, but we’ve decided to be on the safe side. It’s something our customers care about,” said Ginger Reeder, corporate spokeswoman for the Neiman Marcus Group, which operates Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. She said the dogs patrol on a regular basis, and there’s also a general pest control plan in place at Neiman Marcus’ distribution centers. As far as the three Hollister, A&F and Victoria’s Secret stores that were plagued by the bed bugs, they all said they’re bug-free now after extermination procedures.
