I think SOURH7WK is spot on with the explanation. By dropping the word "store's" option C and D basically imply that the store is the flagship of the the entire Manhattan while that is not the case. E has an obvious referencing error with respect to "their".

I picked B. My explanation..........

Bloomingdale‘s store in Santa Monica, which opened this summer, is about 105,000 square feet on two floors, less than one-eighth the size of the chain‘s Manhattan flagship store.

A. store in Santa Monica, which opened this summer, is about 105,000 square feet on two floors, less than one-eighth the size of the chain‘s Manhattan flagship store. - which is modifying Santa Monica, it should modify store B. Santa Monica store, which opened this summer, is about 105,000 square feet on two floors, less than one-eighth the size of the chain‘s Manhattan flagship store. - Correct. which modifies the store. Compares the size correctly with the chain's flagship store C. store in Santa Monica, which opened this summer, is about 105,000 square feet on two floors, fewer than one-eighth the size of the Manhattan flagship store. - which is modifying Santa Monica, it should modify store D. Santa Monica store, which opened this summer, is about 105,000 square feet on two floors, less than one-eighth the size of the Manhattan flagship store. - the size is incorrectly compared with the Manhattan flagship store. There could be many flagship stores in Manhattan. It didn't tell which one E. Santa Monica store, which opened this summer, is about 105,000 square feet on two floors, less than one-eighth the size of their Manhattan flagship store. - size of their? incorrect antecedent reference

Some of the explanations above didn't correctly specify the errors IMO.

which opened this summer should modify store and not Santa Monica, so we can eliminate A and C In B,C and D, the size has been compared to size and not with the store or something else. Bloomingdale is in possessive form in the non-underlined part, therefore their in option E cannot refer to Bloomingdale. Option D doesn't clearly specifies Bloomingdale's Manhattan flagship store. To clearly specify Bloomingdale's Manhattan flagship store we need to use a noun or a pronoun. We cant use a pronoun due to possessive form of Bloomingdale, therefore using chain's is correct. Hence B
