4 Tips on How To Shop on Nordstrom
- Jun 10, 2016
- Know the difference between the stores. Nordstrom stores are actually separated into two different places, Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack. The latter one is your go-to place if you’re looking for great deals as they sell all the clearance items from the original retail stores. These stores will offer you great discounts for great clothes, the only downside is that they’re “sooo last year”, literally. Most of the clothes are either off season or from older collections. If you’re looking for something that’s a little more fashionable, you should visit their main stores – Nordstrom, but before you go there, always remember the golden rule of 70/30. 70% of your clothes should be regularly worn and easy to match with other apparel and only 30% of your wardrobe should be flashy and fashionable.
- Check the size charts. We’re assuming you already know your measurements, if you’re shopping for clothes online, so all that’s left to do is to double-check the size charts. Many brands have different measurements when it comes to clothing. Take a look at Nordstrom’s size charts for the clothing brand you’re currently looking at to avoid any silly mistakes. Be sure to check for the units of measurements or you can end up looking like you’ve just popped out of a rap music video.
- Don’t worry if you made a mistake. Nordstrom probably has one of the best, if not the best, return policy out there. As crazy as it might sound, you can return the item even after you cut off the price tag and worn it. Maybe those pants don’t really make your eyes look prettier or maybe the sweater irritates your skin for some reason, they don’t really care. They will even take the items that you had for over a year, just as long as they’re not worn too much. All you need to have is the price tag, no receipts required, how cool is that?
- Keep looking for sales. Whether you’re a Nordstrom Rack frequent or a simple once a year Nordstrom visitor, you should know when to shop. The biggest sale is on their anniversary, each year taking place sometime in July. Nordstrom will offer you brand-new styles and let you get them for ridiculously low prices, this only happens on their anniversary though, but don’t worry as there are plenty of other occasions when you can get your favourite clothes for cheap prices – it’s simple, the next time you’re in a store, ask a store attendant for sale dates and they will be happy to help. You can also provide them with your email to get information on sales directly. A good thing to remember is that anything that’s discounted past 60% goes directly to Nordstrom Rack, so don’t miss something that you wanted this whole season!
