Tomorrow, Jacksonville gets it’s first taste of Nordstrom via Nordstrom Rack. The outlet version of the popular department store carries all the big name brands, but at a significant discount! It’s a bargain shoppers dream!
Last night was the pre-opening party and while I didn’t get a direct invite, my awesome friend Erin invited me as her +1! To say I was excited was an understatement! I like to browse in person rather than buy online…try things on, move in them a bit, hem haw over them. While I’ve had okay luck online shopping, shoes & jeans are two things that rarely work out, so I was uber pumped to be able to touch and feel and try on all the brands I have been drooling over online.
Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Paige Denim…just to name a few
I knew the pre-opening would be busy, but it was beyond crazy. So busy in fact that it was hard for me to concentrate on what I wanted to look at! There were people everywhere, delicious snacks & drinks, a line 10+ people long waiting for the dressing rooms, several registers busy checking people out as well as employees walking around with handheld check out machines!
I did, however, manage to come away with a few purchases so apparently I wasn’t THAT distracted. 😉
I know there is a ton more good stuff there that I missed so I can’t wait until it officially opens tomorrow! There is going to be a big opening day party starting at 8am. I want to go back, but I’m probably better off waiting a couple of weeks until the craziness dies down.
