Share post:

Nordstrom has provided us the list of brands it will carry at its second Canadian location, opening at 9:30am on Friday, March 6th at Ottawa’s Rideau Centre. Prices vary widely, from costly luxury designers to the affordable. Some brands will be only available at Nordstrom in Ottawa, including the retailer’s popular private-label collections that we’ll also discuss below. 

The list of brands below is substantial, so we’ll break it down into categories. We’ll begin the list with footwear designers, since Nordstrom was founded in 1901 as a shoe retailer and continues to carry a substantial amount of footwear. We’ll then list brands for accessories, various women’s, men’s and children’s categories, and finish off by listing brands exclusive to Nordstrom in Canada, as well as a full list of Nordstrom’s private label brands. We’ll also briefly discuss which brands will be the priciest in each category.

If you’re looking to beat the opening day crowds, Nordstrom is hosting an early morning ‘Beauty Bash‘ beginning two hours prior to the store’s opening. Between 7:30 am and 9:30 am, Nordstrom will host an event profiling the expansive beauty department of its new Rideau Centre store. New products and trends from top names in beauty and fragrance will be featured, including instruction from the Nordstrom team of beauty experts. Complimentary consultations and demonstrations will be provided, and attendees can meet at Nordstrom’s main mall entrance. The event is complimentary.

As well, Nordstrom just announced the identity of its new Vancouver store manager. As well, it will hire about 1,000 people for the new Pacific Centre flagship, including 44 management positions. Applications for management positions will be accepted beginning next week, with further details at: www.careers.nordstrom.com.
