Nordstrom Men's Store in Manhattan

This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of finally visiting the new Nordstrom Men's Store in Manhattan. The brand recently came to NYC, one of the last few markets left untouched until now. A bit surprising that the brand is just making its entry now, but then again with Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, and Barney's, there is plenty of well established NY competition.

At a time when everyone is saying that retail is dead, the place was alive and well. Filled with shoppers, and shoppers buying stuff!

But it's no wonder, from the moment we walked into the store we knew we would love it. All the merchandise was well displayed, and it ranged from very high end to much lower end. Valentino to Levi's. Literally something for everybody.

The live DJ made the entire space come to life, and we were instantly greeted and re-greeted and re-greeted the entire time. Each time with a big smile. No sales push, just a big smile. Each time. Over and over again. Am I repeating myself?

During the process, we were invited to a special event for Pride Month on Wednesday night which I think we might actually attend. We can't wait to go back.

And yes, we did make a purchase for sure. How could we not? The shopping experience was incredible. And it is now going to be one of our regular (if not favorite) shopping destinations.

Check it out. Retail is alive and well at Nordstrom's Mens in Manhattan. What took you so long?

What's your experience? JIM.
