I wrote a letter about a great employee and was contacted by Alyssa Rich who offered $50 on my next purchase at the Downtown Nordstrom. She asked that I let her know what day I would be in, which I did. I went in on the scheduled day, made a large purchase and DID NOT receive the $50. I said... More

It's true - this store is a pleasure to shop. The customer service is top notch, and no pressure from the sales floor. Right now the flagship store is under renovation, so getting around can be a bit difficult - but just ask anyone, they will help. Secret gems - the Cafe and the Shoe Shine!

We were staying close to Nordstrom's so we thought that we would compare our Nordstrom's at Mall of America to this one. I didn't feel that this store had any signs of being historic as compared to the first Starbucks near Pike Place Market. Since we don't have to pay sales tax in Minnesota on clothes, we weren't that interested... More

There were carolers singing and Christmas bells ringing. I didn't dislike anything I like the fact that all the stores were easily accessible and that from the 3rd floor you could see everything.

There is no lack of service when you enter this high end department store. I was looking for a specific pair of shoes and the clerk found them within less than a minute. From the beginning to the end of the transaction it was 5 very friendly minutes. The clerk noticed that I was from Canada and told me that... More

I do not recommend checking out Nordstrom unless you want to go shopping. There is no WOW factor in its architecture and nothing special in its interior decor. History buffs may want to take a quick look, however, because this is the flagship store. Occasionally, someone plays the grand piano by the shoe department but there doesn't seem to be... More

You have to visit the Nordstrom Flagship store for America when in Seattle. Fantastic service always and this location is no different. I love Nordstrom for it's service and selection of fine items. Their fragrance dept. is my ultimate favorite. The kids section is top notch with fantastic prices for great name designers.

As nice as the other Nordstrom's are...this is worth the visit. Just walking through first level was a wonderful experience...live grand piano player, huge shoe department, the cosmetic area felt like I was on Times Square...next time I'll make time to have a bite to eat in the café.

It's true that the store is not super visually appealing but don't let that deter you. When I was there in May it was buzzing with activity. They were having an event in the cosmetics department. I also want to say the Nordstrom spa is wonderful. I only had a manicure and it was pricey but well worth the money.... More
