Nordstrom has arrived in Norwalk. The retailer opened its doors Oct. 11 at the new SoNo Collection. Recently, WAG had the opportunity to talk with Molly Carmody, Nordstrom SoNo Collection store manager:
What should shoppers expect from latest Nordstrom?
“We’re excited to bring our Norwalk customers a brand-new store featuring our latest design concepts and an exciting selection of merchandise for the whole family. We owe our Connecticut customers a lot for helping us build our business here over the last 22 years, and believe that our new store at the SoNo Collection will help us do a better job of serving customers in the community, enabling them to shop more easily on their terms.”
How will the store attract people to make brick and mortar relevant again?
“Our SoNo Collection store is the first to showcase Express Services, which is a new department featuring more than 2,700 square feet dedicated to services such as online order pickup, easy returns and alterations. This is a great example of how we’re evolving to bridge the gap between in-store shopping and online, to make shopping easy and convenient no matter how customers choose to shop with us.
“Additionally, our new store is also the first to showcase our latest beauty concept, Nordstrom Beauty Haven, which highlights wellness, haircare and beauty tools with top trending brands and services that pamper customers from head to toe — whether they have 30 minutes or three hours. The services range from an Anastasia Beverly Hills brow suite, a base coat nail salon and a light salon, which offers a variety of spot treatments and peels.”
What are the new trends and featured goods we can expect?
“We have four shoe departments where customers can find everything from Nike to Doc Martens to Christian Louboutin, including several Nordstrom Exclusive styles from Valentino, Prada, Golden Goose and Givenchy. The store also has four specialty handbag boutiques including Chloé, Longchamp, Givenchy and Mansur Gavriel.
“We also have an incredible selection of products in At Home, where we just introduced bedding, dinnerware, home scents and bathroom essentials from The White Company, a brand that’s new to Nordstrom.”
What are you most excited for?
“We’re eager to welcome customers to showcase our latest store design and some of the company’s most exciting, new beauty and service concepts, in addition to great fashion at a breadth of price points. We can’t wait for customers to experience the best of what we have to offer and look forward to welcoming them right here in Norwalk.”
