Photo of the Day: Nordstrom NYC Grand Opening Promo

I took the photo accompanying this post almost two weeks ago, during a weekend promotion for the newly opened Nordstrom flagship store in New York City.

The arrival of the department store chain just south of Central Park, on 57th Street and Broadway, was greeted with lines around the block. Its performance is going to be closely watched, given all that the company has put into the seven-floor, 320,000-sq.-ft. building and the recent performance of the department store segment as a whole.

I could go on and on about the extent to which department stores truly deserve the tepid reception they’ve received from Wall Street lately, but now’s not the time. The retail industry—and New York City—can use a brick-and-mortar success story.

In any case, I am sure I will find myself in the vicinity of this store as we get closer to Christmas, when I can take in its window display.
