Is Nordstrom Rack Your New Favorite Thrift Store?

March 2, 2012 by Justine Schwartz
shefinds | beauty

You probably equate the Nordstrom brand with upscale, designer department store shopping — but what you’ll get at their Nordstrom Rack outposts is actually more thrift-shopping. According to CNBC, the chain is recycling returned and worn shoes to its Rack outlets. Though they are clearly labeled as “worn and refinished” (and they’re cheaper, of course) this might surprise Nordstrom shoppers who expect next season’s styles — not last‘s — on the shelves.

Personally, I have a “thing” about wearing other people’s shoes (its the last item I would buy at a thrift store — even if they’re rare, vintage finds or by high-end designers), but I don’t mind this practice at all. We all know how important recycling is for our planet, and this is a very chic and practical way to recycle.

But, as the CNBC report warns, sometimes the used pairs, “are slipped side-by-side on the racks with new items,” so this is a perfect example of buyer’s beware. Next time you’re shopping the Rack, make sure those Jimmy Choo’s you’re trying on haven’t been on somebody else’s feet.
