Nordstrom's men's flagship store has already become one of the cornerstones of New York's retail scene, after just opening last year. Now, Nordstrom Inc. has announced plans to open a women's flagship store this October. The retailer plans on opening a seven story, 320,000-square-foot store on West 57th Street scheduled for October 42. The news was reported by Business of Fashion.
This makes the department store competition in New York tougher than it ever has been. Nordstrom's rival, Neiman Marcus, opened a store at Hudson Yards this past March as part of the the Hudson Yards retail development, one of the most transformative projects in the history of Manhattan's retail scene. Manhattan is also home to other Nordstrom competitors including Bloomingdale's and Saks Fifth Avenue, too.
New York has been a goal for Nordstrom for quite some time, and they began last year with the opening of their men's flagship store. New York has also become a major component of Nordstrom's growth. In addition to the men's store and their new flagship, the company has also opened two Nordstrom service hubs where customers can pick up online orders and receive alterations and tailoring.photo: courtesy of KCD
