Nordstrom Local represents Nordstrom's latest attempt to adapt to changing consumer habits. At a high level, the goal is to create a more inviting experience than a full-size department store, which can sometimes be daunting to navigate.
The Nordstrom Local store's
main attraction is that it offers a variety of services, ranging from
alterations to manicures to free consultations with personal stylists.
It also features a bar serving beer, wine, and pressed juice. The store
doesn't carry its own inventory, but it can get items from nearby
full-line stores within hours, and it has eight changing rooms in
addition to a "styling suite.". . . more
