Eye Spy: Countdown to #Nordstrom Grand Opening

NordstromThe countdown is on! This Friday, March 6, Nordstrom is throwing open the doors at their flagship Ottawa location in the Rideau Centre and we can’t wait. Having seen the care and detail they have put in to the fittings and fixtures at the media preview and the attention to detail in their outreach we expect great things from his retailer.

The invitations to preview and visit the site have been fast and furious – this is an organization that has demonstrated great interest in plugging in and engaging with out local community. Hosting events since last year and a flurry of happening this week.

Find below a couple of opening day promotions from the PR and service team!

More  than just fashion there are some wonderful site highlights: The in-house restaurant, the kid’s play area and the outstanding change rooms!

Opening Day Beauty Bash:  Friday, March 6, 7:30-9:30 a.m.
In addition to the excitement taking place inside the store (please see below), the outside of the store will also be a hot spot as Nordstrom hosts a cosmetics and fragrance “Beauty Bash” at its mall entrance.  Nordstrom beauty advisors will offer complimentary skincare consultations.  Nordstrom Beauty Director Loredana Grama will share the latest beauty tips and tricks. Loredana is also available for media interviews about seasonal beauty and fragrance trends.
Opening Day Store Countdown:  Friday, March 6, 9:30 a.m.
More than 600 employees have been working and waiting for this day!  Department teams will begin their own cheers, and then Store Manager John Banks will start rallying all the employees for what has become a Nordstrom opening tradition: a rowdy final store-wide opening countdown, during which employees will line the aisles near the store’s entrances to welcome and applaud the first customers through the doors when they open.  Members of the Nordstrom family will be available for brief interviews.  It’s a great opportunity to get customers’ first reactions to the new store.  Important note:  Media interested in capturing the countdown and opening from inside the store can arrange for early store entry at 9:15 a.m.

Tremendous that this location was chosen for this, Nordstrom’s second location in our great country! Merci et Bienvenue!
