Nordstrom is without doubt one of the world’s most prestigious department stores. What most people don’t know, is that it’s also the embodiment of a true rags to riches tale. The store’s founder, John W. Nordstrom left his home country of Sweden aged 16, and set off for the lights of New York with only 5 dollars to his name. Distracted on route by the lure of the Alaskan gold mines, there he earned enough to invest in his first independent business venture. Setting up a shoe-store named ‘Wallis & Nordstrom’ in downtown Seattle 1901, he dedicated his business to exceptional service, selection, quality and value. Quickly drawing a devoted customer base, it’s no surprise that a second store quickly followed… then by a third, and a fourth.
Today Nordstrom has 231 stores all over the United States, and is available world-wide through their beloved online store. A fashion legacy, Nordstrom is renowned for retailing the finest apparel, shoes and accessories for every member of the family. Items are categorized by lifestyle and customer need, rather than by merchandise, and with a generous size (and budget) range, their luxury goods are truly accessible for everyone.
Expect to see big name luxury designers like Phillip Lim, McQueen, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Balmain, Chanel, Celine, Donna Karan, Emilio Pucci, Herve Leger, Jil Sander, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, Roland Mouret, Sonia Rykiel and so, so much more from their star-studded lineup.
Literally stocking everything under the sun, you can purchase anything from denim to bridalwear – and a whole lot more. Clothing, shoes, beauty, designer, wedding, accessories and swimwear – as well as a brilliant and regularly updated StyleWatch column to keep you on the cutting edge of this season’s trends. Regardless if you’re shopping for a new baby, a hard-to-buy-for Uncle, your oldest friend or for your wedding day, Nordstrom will undoubtedly have something to solve all your retail needs.
Nordstrom is only available to us Aussies via the online store – which is beautiful, and so easy to use. The only downside is that shipping across the ocean tends to be costly, which combined with the luxury items can make your shopping basket slightly on the pricey side. But never fear, Dealies are here to help! We will keep you informed on all discounts, online sales and coupon codes – as they become available, and of course post any codes for Shipping Discounts as soon as we spot them!
