Brace Yourselves, Shoppers: NYC Is Finally Getting A Nordstrom

It's finally happening — our lives as NYC shoppers will change forever and we just can't hold in our excitement any longer. Today, Peter Nordstrom (yeah, you guessed it, of Nordstrom) and Mayor Bloomberg are expected to announce plans to construct Nordstrom's first-ever New York City store, according to Women's Wear Daily .
That's right, no longer will we need to venture to Jersey to visit the legendary service-focused department chain, all it will take is a short walk to West 57th Street. Retail experts say that it will take at least two years to get the flagship store ready for business — with a space roughly around 300,000- square-feet, the retailer will be amongst one of New York's largest department stores (think bigger than Bergdorf's, but smaller than Saks).
