Nordstrom has revealed new details and an exterior rendering of its CF Toronto Eaton Centre flagship, ahead of the store’s September 16, 2016 grand opening. 

The three level, 220,000 square foot Nordstrom will be located at the northern end of the busy downtown Toronto shopping centre. When it opens, Nordstrom CF Toronto Eaton Centre will be one of only five flagships for the Seattle-based retailer, along with locations in Vancouver, San Francisco, downtown Seattle and Chicago. A 363,000 square foot Manhattan flagship will join in 2019.

Toronto Eaton Centre’s Nordstrom will feature three restaurant concepts — Bistro Verde restaurant, Habitant lounge, and coffee concept Ebar. The store will also feature the following:

  • Personal Stylist 
  • Concierge
  • Alterations/Tailor Shop

The store will also feature Nordstrom’s new SPACE department, developed by former Opening Ceremony VP Olivia Kim, featuring emerging and otherwise unrepresented international designers. 

CF Toronto Eaton Centre’s Nordstrom will be the first of three for Toronto. A 196,000 square foot Yorkdale Shopping Centre location is set to open on October 21 of this year, and a 138,000 square foot CF Sherway Gardens store will open some time in the fall of 2017. 

Nordstrom will be the latest addition to CF Toronto Eaton Centre, which last week saw the opening of Canada’s first Saks Fifth Avenue store. According to retail experts, the opening of both stores could help transform Yonge Street, as the area continues to see new retailers.
