If you want a read on rich shoppers, this is one of the best barometers out there, said Cramer.
The Mad Money host was talking about Saks, the ultimate high-end department store.
The flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York City has become so important to high end shoppers, it's as much a destination for overseas shoppers as it is for Americans.

"Whether tax rates go up or not is less important to the Saks shopper than how they feel about their net worth," he explained.
Rather than the fiscal cliff, Sadove said the big issue for his business was Super-storm Sandy. "That was a punch to the stomach," he said.
