Nordstrom Casually Just Opened A New Line Of Stores—& We’re Obsessed

If Nordstrom is your jam then you need to visit one of their new ‘Local’ stores immediately!

The department store just opened their sixth location of the concept store Nordstrom Local in New York City, where, like the other shops nationwide, you can do quick and easy returns, get alterations done, meet with stylists, and eventually, will be able to get same-day delivery. Now that’s what I’m talking about!

How does it work? Think of the shops like a go-between for your online purchases and your closet. Not sure about an item? Ship it to Nordstrom local (for free, as always) and try it on at the store. If it’s not as expected, you can swap it out immediately instead of waiting days for an online return. Not sure about a dress for a wedding? Order a few styles and make an appointment with one of their onsite stylists or tailors. There are seriously so many ways to use it.

And the stores are located right in the heart of the neighborhoods, so you can stop by on your way home from work (or on your lunch break—shhh!). This model is perfect for last-minute shoppers like myself who are always frantically looking for that perfect dress for Saturday night.

I tried the new UES Local store and loved it. It was really nice to put a face (an incredible tailor named Justin) to the Nordstrom brand. Even though they don’t carry much merchandise in store, it was nice to be in a physical store location without having to drive to the mall. It just felt more personal. The employees were helpful and knowledgeable—Justin tailored my Levi’s to perfection. (Psst—New Yorkers—they also have one in the West Village.)

Other services you can get are shoe and handbag repair, gift wrapping with Paper Source products, stroller cleanings at some locations, curated Pop-Ins, and more.

You can also drop off your clothing donations there, which we love, thanks to a partnership with Housing Works.

I mean honestly, your closet will have never looked better! And yes, you will get that dress by Saturday night.
