Nordstrom Inc. has taken a minority stake in Wantful, a fast-growing, two-year-old online gift retailer.
It’s a move consistent with Nordstrom investments in other Web sites the last couple of years, including HauteLook, Bonobos and Sole Society, as well as in multichannel retailers Jeffrey and Peek. Though Nordstrom is already considered to be among the most advanced retailers online, the investment strategy enhances the Nordstrom experience by sharing technologies and online tools for customers and supplementing the merchandising.
