NEW YORK — Nordstrom has high expectations for its Manhattan flagship and a lengthy road ahead before the store is up and running.
“It’s quite something. This has been a long time coming,” said Pete Nordstrom, president of merchandising, Nordstrom Inc., at a press conference Thursday revealing that Nordstrom’s first full-line store in New York City will open in 2018 or possibly 2017, and will be located at 225 West 57th Street, between Broadway and Seventh Avenue near Columbus Circle.
