Nordstrom has provided a full list of brands carried in its 230,000 square foot Vancouver store, set to open Friday, September 18. The Pacific Centre location will carry far more brands than Nordstrom's Calgary and Ottawa stores, including some exclusive concessions and shop-in-stores. This may not be surprising, given that Vancouver's Nordstrom will be one of only six global flagships for the retailer. Nordstrom has also provided us with a full list of in-store services and amenities, which we have included in a separate article.
Prior to its 9:30 am opening, Nordstrom is holding a pre-opening beauty bash from 7:30 am until 9:30am, accessed via the 799 Robson Street entrance. You can get your makeup done and have free breakfast bites and coffee, with live music by Side One.
Nordstrom Pacific Centre features a remarkable number of upscale shops-in-stores, possibly more than any other Nordstrom location. Below, we will list its luxury shops-in-stores, followed by a listing of luxury designers. Following that, we will provide a full category-by-category list of designers, and will conclude with lists of its Canadian designers, as well the store's brand exclusives.
Nordstrom's Vancouver store features two high-profile luxury boutiques -- Christian Louboutin footwear and accessories for women, and Delvaux women's leathergoods. This will be Paris-based Louboutin's second Canadian location (its first opened at Holt Renfrew's Toronto Yorkdale store in 2012) and Belgium's Delvaux is exclusive to Nordstrom in Canada. Nordstrom's only other Louboutin shop is in its Chicago flagship location, and we're not aware of any other Nordstrom locations carrying Delvaux.
