For the city’s most hardcore shoppers, it has been an almost unbearable to wait for the opening of the Nordstrom flagship at the corner of Robson and Granville Streets.
At 10am on Friday, September 18th the shiny glass doors of the 230,000 square foot shopping mecca will swing open and provide relief to the consuming masses. It will be a glorious day – no matter what weather our quirky west coast climate will bring!
For shoppers who love to get the scoop on new trends, receive free consultations, enjoy sips and snacks and receive special gifts they need to be one of the first 1,000 customers there at the doors at 7:30am. To reserve your place by calling the Nordstrom Vancouver beauty hotline at 1-800-723-2889.
Also worthy of a giant calendar notation is the event on September 16th. This Seattle based company will host a gala event which will benefit the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, the BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre Foundation, Covenant House Vancouver and the Vancouver Art Gallery. The gala will take place within the new Vancouver flagship and guests will be feted with amazing food, beverages and fantastic fashion over the course of a star-studded evening.
Special guests will include members of the Nordstrom family, Vogue International Editor-at-Large Hamish Bowles, Vogue West Coast Director Lisa Love and local television personalities Tamara Taggart, Jill Krop and menswear style icon and Ted Baker ambassador Jason Sarai.
Ritchie Po and I will be attending this Nordstrom gala evening and look forward to sharing our experiences and photographs with everyone!
Update: As of July 3rd, the Fall Fashion showcase at the Vancouver Art Gallery is SOLD OUT!
