Nordstrom has announced plans to open in YORKDALE

This literally came across our desk a couple minutes ago, but we just got word that Nordstom has announced concrete plans to open in Yorkdale Fall 2016.

“We are thrilled to bring a store to Yorkdale Shopping Centre and view this as a tremendous opportunity to serve Toronto,” said Karen McKibbin, President of Nordstrom Canada. “Yorkdale is clearly a premier fashion destination, home to an impressive mix of retailers and we’re excited to be part of the centre. Ever since we announced that we’re coming to Canada, we have been humbled by the response from customers, and we can’t wait to get to work on earning their business.”

Yorkdale continues its push to become Canada’s most encompassing mall, and with the stores they have been packing in there the past couple of years, it’s hard to argue it any other way.

Nordstrom is a huge mid-range to high – luxury department store, and will put some significant pressure on The Hudson’s Bay Company. Look for big shake-ups in the Canada’s retail landscape with Nordstrom’s arrival.
