Nordstrom is coming to Toronto, but eager shoppers will have to wait


Published:

Itʼs official: high-end department store Nordstrom is the latest American retailer to migrate to the Great White North, with Toronto getting its very own location at Sherway Gardens in 2016. Holt Renfrew and the Bay: you’ve been warned.

The CBC reports that the U.S. retailer will open its first-ever Canadian locations beginning in 2014 in Calgary, followed by Ottawa and Vancouver, before finally breaking ground in Hogtown.

The planned Toronto store will be approximately 138,000 square feet, the smallest of Canadian stores, although ours will be built from the ground up; the other Canuck locales will replace existing Sears stores.

Though not as swanky - or expensive - as Saks Fifth Avenue or Barney’s, Nordstrom offers a slew of designer clothing and shoes from such labels as Burberry, Jason Wu and Valentino, as well as more wallet-friendly brands like Nine West and French Connection.

Not surprisingly, Nordstrom isn’t expected to keep prices the same across the border - meaning we’ll be forking over more money for those designer duds -  however, the store probably won’t make the same overpricing snafu that J.Crew made a few years ago.

Good idea.
