Nordstrom’s impeccable customer service is legendary, and its commitment to innovation at the intersection of retail and technology continues. But because ten consecutive quarters of double-digit sales growth don’t make it immune to the mercurial retail environment, Nordstrom is future- proofing its brand with the acquisition of flash sale site HauteLook, the USD $140 million investment in its own e-commerce upgrades. To inject some excitement and energy into its brand experience, Nordstrom will sell Bonobos brand men’s apparel, previously a web-only experience, and carry exclusive styles from U.K.’s Topshop.
