Nordstrom Moves In On Canadian Market


    Nordstrom Inc. is finalizing its plans to set up shop in four locations in Canada, including three sites that Sears Canada Inc. is vacating this fall. It plans to launch its first Canadian stores at the Pacific Centre in Vancouver, BC; the Chinook Centre in Calgary, AB; the Rideau Centre in Ottawa, ON; and Sherway Gardens in Toronto, ON. Nordstrom will compete with mid- to high-end fashion incumbents such as Holt Renfrew, the Bay, and Harry Rosen.
