This will be the second-largest Nordstrom store scheduled to open in Canada after the announcement of a 230,000 square foot Vancouver store. In January we reported on the generally 'smaller-sized' Canadian Nordstrom stores. The Yorkdale Nordstrom store will likely become the third-largest Canadian Nordstrom location after negotiations for a Downtown Toronto flagship Nordstrom store are concluded.
The mall expansion will involve demolishing a parking structure. Replacement parking will be provided under the expansion.

In November 2012 we reported on Yorkdale's $220 million, 145,000 square-foot expansion. Last month we reported on Yorkdale's securing multiple luxury retail tenants. Yorkdale's latest announcement of an expansion including Nordstrom solidifies Yorkdale's status as Canada's number-one shopping centre.

Yorkdale Shopping Centre's Nordstrom joins an expanded and renovated 120,000 square foot Holt Renfrew store expected to be completed by late Spring, and a renovated 300,000 square foot Hudson's Bay department store. A 190,000 square foot Sears store will continue to operate in the mall.
We will update you with Yorkdale expansion floorplans and images when available. We will also present readers with a floor-by-floor guide of the new store being provided by a source at Nordstrom head office.
