In case you missed the news, Nordstrom has started to reopen its locations across Canada after having closed them due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The retailer’s stores closed in March and we don’t know about you, but we’ve been itching to shop again once it’s safe.
Select Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack locations are set to reopen in Ontario on Thursday, June 11.
In an email sent to StyleDemocracy, the retailer says, “Our stores have always been, and continue to be, a core part of our business. We’re taking a phased, market-by-market approach to reopening our stores. The health and wellbeing of our employees, customers and communities is our priority. We’ve been paying close attention to guidance and directives from local and national authorities, taking steps to ensure our stores and operations remain in alignment with those.”
The Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack locations that are reopening are: Nordstrom Rideau Centre, Nordstrom Sherway Gardens, Nordstrom Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Nordstrom Toronto Eaton Centre, Nordstrom Rack Ottawa Train Yards, Nordstrom Rack Vaughan Mills, and Nordstrom Rack Heartland Town Centre.
Nordstrom is taking the following steps to protect staff and shoppers:
- Conducting temperature checks and health screenings for our employees before they come into work
- Providing face coverings for employees and customers
- Taking steps to allow for social distancing of six feet or more, including limiting the number of customers and employees in the store
- Increasing cleaning and sanitization
- Modifying the fitting room experience
- Continuing to offer contactless curbside services at our full-line stores
- Pausing or adapting high-touch services and customer events
- Keeping tried on or returned merchandise off the salesfloor for a period of time
- Altering hours of operation
