Nordstrom to Open Four Stores in Canada

By Bizclik Editor


Nordstrom announced today its plans of expansion into the Canadian retail market. Collaborating with Cadillac Fairview, Nordstrom plans to lease four stores in shopping centres located in Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver.

This announcement hasn’t come as a complete surprise as Nordstrom has been considering this expansion for some time. Rumours and speculations on Nordstrom’s looking north of the border for retail expansion sprang up in July of this year.

Taking over leases that have been previously vacated by Sears Canada, Nordstrom will open within the following shopping centres including Vancouver’s Pacific Centre, Calgary’s Chinook Centre, and Ottawa’s Rideau Centre. In Toronto, Nordstrom’s Canada location will be new construction in Sherway Gardens.
