VANCOUVER– We’re all eagerly waiting for the Nordstrom space to open in Vancouver. The designer retailer will be opening their doors on September 18, 2015 rather than the quoted Spring 2015 deadline that was initially targeted in the beginning of the project.

Vancouverites have expressed excitement for the store opening and its ability to widen the retail market in Vancouver. Within the last two years, international retailers such as Sephora, Victoria Secret, Papyrus, Michael Kors and J Crew have moved into spaces within downtown Vancouver.

The availability of American retailers and brands in Canada will be an advantage for residents who would normally have to cross the border to shop. -A.
