Coming soon, a department store with no departments.
FOX’s Hilarie Barsky explains:
Nordstrom will be opening a new concept store in Los Angeles that doesn’t have any inventory.
Labeled Nordstrom Local, the store will be staffed with personal stylists who can order merchandise for shoppers. Customers can also shop online inside the store or pick up online orders the same day. The store will also offer tailoring and manicure services.
The newest store in west Hollywood is slated to open on October 3 with eight dressing rooms, where shoppers can try on clothes and accessories, though the store won’t stock them. Instead, personal stylists will retrieve goods from Nordstrom locations in Los Angeles, or through its website.
The new concept comes as retailers across the country are dealing with how their physical spaces can attract customers who are gravitating to online shopping.
