Nordstrom has provided us the list of brands it will carry at its first Canadian location, opening September 19th at Calgary's Chinook Centre. Prices vary widely, from costly luxury designers to the affordable. Some brands will be only available at Nordstrom in Canada, including the retailer's popular private-label collections that we'll also discuss below.

The list of brands below is massive, so we'll break it down into categories. We'll begin the list with footwear designers, since Nordstrom was founded in 1901 as a shoe retailer and continues to carry a substantial amount of footwear. We'll then list brands for accessories, various women's, men's and children's categories, and finish off by listing brands exclusive to Nordstrom in Canada, as well as a full list of Nordstrom's private label brands. We'll also briefly discuss which brands will be the priciest in each category, since we tend to focus on luxury goods.
