This novel idea is Nordstrom tailoring to the new ways people shop. Shea Jensen, Nordstrom’s senior vice president of customer experience, told The Wall Street Journal that “[shopping] today may not always mean going to a store and looking at a vast amount of inventory. It can mean trusting an expert to pick out a selection of items.” We understand where she’s coming from - with services like Stitch Fix, Frank + Oak Elevate, and Nordstrom’s very own Trunk Club offering stylist-picked pieces sent straight to your home, Nordstrom Local is just another version of these subscription services.

When you walk into Nordstrom Local, you’ll be greeted by one styling suite and eight surrounding dressing rooms. You’ll step into a central meeting area where customers can enjoy refreshments (from espressos to juices to alcoholic beverages) and chat with personal stylists. If you like something they recommend, the stylists can have the merchandise brought in for you to purchase. Learn more about the complete list of services available at Nordstrom Local:
