Our Toronto retailing expert is a professor at the University of Toronto. He states that he expects Nordstrom's flooring and ceilings to reflect a similarly 'more modern' look seen in some European department stores and in more contemporary Neiman Marcus stores. Smooth ceilings, stone flooring and bright lighting are what international shoppers are coming to expect and this is one of the core clients expected at Canadian Nordstroms. He thinks Nordstrom will try out a 'new look' for Canadian stores that will be reflected in its 2018-opening Manhattan store, which will include whopping 25-foot ceilings.
