Nordstrom gives up ghost on building that used to house Eaton’s and Sears. Who’s next?
Vancouver’s Nordstrom store was busy with shoppers Friday, the day after the Seattle company announced it was closing its stores across Canada, and some customers were looking for closing out sales.
“We thought we we’re going to find some things on sale, that’s why we came today,” said Romeo Araneta, who left the store Friday morning without any parcels. “But’s it’s still expensive.”
Araneta said he made the trip into Vancouver from Delta about twice a year and will miss the U.S. department store that opened in September 2015, because “I was buying bags for my wife. The bags here you can’t buy everywhere.”
And he said he couldn’t figure out why the store didn’t do well, at the corner of the busy intersection next to a SkyTrain station in the heart of Vancouver’s shopping district.
“It’s a nice area, a nice location,” he said.
