Nordstrom, Inc. () is an American luxury department store chain. Founded in 1901 by John W. Nordstrom and Carl F. Wallin, it originated as a shoe store and evolved into a full-line retailer with departments for clothing, footwear, handbags, jewelry, accessories, cosmetics, and fragrances. Some stores feature home furnishings and wedding departments, and several have in-house cafes, restaurants, and espresso bars.

As of 2020, Nordstrom operates 100 stores in 40 U.S. states, and three Canadian provinces since entering the market in 2014. The company opened a store in Puerto Rico in 2015, and exited the market during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The corporate headquarters and flagship store are located in the former Frederick & Nelson building in Seattle, Washington; a second flagship store is located near Columbus Circle in New York City. Its subsidiaries include the off-price department store chain Nordstrom Rack and the members-only online store HauteLook.

  • Visited and shopped here twice during our stay in Seattle. Mostly high end shops but you can get a bargain. Toilets and restaurant on the fourth floor, toilets were very clean.  more »
  • Jasper in the mens department went above and beyond for my wedding tux. Not only did he help with my tux selection, he always stayed by during my alterations to make sure the fit was correct and helped expedite last minute alternations needs before my wedding. He was honest with his opinions regarding the fit and my selections with other accessories which I really appreciated.
  • I just had the best customer service at Nordstrom. Kudos to Joy Kim in mens suites downtown Seattle. Joy's spirit and professional altitude captures everything Nordstrom stands for.
