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 tends to modify Santa Monica
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 Choice.
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 tends to modify Santa Monica & fewer is wrong here
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. Drops the word Chain's from original sentence
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.Drops the word Chain's from original sentence

Hence Answer B

The problem is D is that possessive Bloomingdale's should be parallel to chain's .

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
