Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) opened the doors this morning to its very first flagship, full-line New York City location and first ever stand-alone men’s store at 235 West 57th Street.

The vast shoe department will include Reebok, Common Projects, Vans, Alden, Church’s, Salvatore Ferragamo, Balenciaga, Gucci and exclusives from Greats and Jack Erwin.
The grooming department will introduce to the U.S., barber-created Murdock London, who will be sending barbers to New York for special appearances. Saturdays NYC will launch product alongside brands like Proraso, Kiehl’s, Tom Ford Grooming and exclusive Ted’s Grooming Room by Ted Baker London. An extensive fragrance selection will include options from Parfums de Marly, By Killian, Chanel, Valentino, Prada, Armani, Dior and many others.
The Nordstrom Men’s Store NYC features the company’s newest store design concepts, including an all-glass façade to bring in more natural light, unboxing the display windows, and connecting the shopping experience to the city. An open, flexible floor plan allows for an evolving curation of how products are displayed over time, depending on what New York customers respond to. The store environment will create a sense of discovery, allowing customers to navigate easily and find new brands they haven’t experienced before.
Nordstrom has been a longtime believer of investing in artwork for its stores. New Yorkers will experience an extensive collection, featuring 39 works by both international and American artists, with a quarter being local. Suspended in the center of a three-story staircase, a floating, diaphanous tree sculpture entitled “Arctic Tree” by the Seattle-based artist John Grade is a nod to the retailer’s Seattle roots.
