Nordstrom has just announced plans to open up its first flagship store in NYC. The store will be located in a 285,000 square-foot space on the ground level of a not-yet-built skyscraper at 225 West 57th Street near Columbus Circle. The only downside? The store isn’t expected to open until 2018. “It’s our desire to make this the absolute best Nordstrom store there is because we need to do that to be able to compete on this stage,” Pete Nordstrom, the chain’s president of merchandising, told reporters. He expects the Manhattan store to be the department store chain’s highest grossing location.
