Nothing is worse than doing some good, old fashioned online shopping and getting to the checkout, then seeing that the import duties cost more than your total. We’ve all been there and that’s why we were thrilled to learn that Nordstrom has launched a Canadian e-commerce platform.
Nordstrom’s recently rolled out e-commerce platform gives Canadians free standard shipping, returns, and no import duty fees.
Before there was this e-com platform, Canadians could always shop Nordstrom.com and pick-up in store for free, however due to COVID-19, that has been suspended. Also due to the pandemic, shipping orders may take longer than normal as more people are ordering online. While standard shipping is free of charge, if you’re looking to receive your goodies within two business days, it’ll cost you an extra $20, and next day deliveries cost $28.
The retailer’s offerings online are quite extensive from designer duds and cosmetics, to mens and kids items, and even homewares.
A few designer names you can expect to see and possibly order range from Balmain, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Burberry, and many more. According to Retail-Insider, the prices at Nordstrom line up with Holt Renfrew. It’s also thought that Nordstrom’s new e-commerce platform will spark competition with high-end Canadian menswear store Harry Rosen as well as Maison Simons and even heritage company Hudson’s Bay.
Only time will tell with how this new platform performs but for now, free shipping and no import duties are definitely something to celebrate!
