Nordstrom is preparing to open its three level, 199,000 square foot store at Yorkdale Shopping Centre — the retailer’s second location in Toronto. It follows the opening of the CF Toronto Eaton Centre store last month, which saw huge crowds line up to check out the new flagship. The Yorkdale store will feature a pre-opening charity gala as well as a number of events, and will also feature a number of brands unavailable at the downtown store.
Yorkdale’s Nordstrom opens to the public on Friday, October 21. The store will also host a number of pre-opening events, as described below. According to Nordstrom’s website, the Yorkdale store will feature several prominent women’s designers and shop-in-store, including Burberry, Céline, Chloé, Dries Van Noten and Valentino. As with the CF Toronto Eaton Centre store, the Yorkdale Nordstrom will feature the edgy ‘SPACE’ department — making Toronto the only city in the world to boast two of them.
