Description: Department stores rarely inspire popular frenzy, but for Seattleites...
Department stores rarely inspire popular frenzy, but for Seattleites, Nordstrom is hardly an average department store. On opening day, crowds waiting to get in literally cheered and pumped their fists.

I can't believe I am writing about a store - but this store is worth writing about! The staff, and their customer service, is second to none! I had a wonderful clerk help me buy enough clothes to outfit me for a long time. She took her time, offered us water, offered many suggestions, and I came away happy! We... More

I had the best time with my girlfriend at Nordstrom this past weekend. It was crazy busy because it was Early Access Anniversary Sale. There were some great buys. The best part of my time in Nordstrom was our sales associate Elsa. I went into the fitting room with a sweater and a pair of jeans and came out an... More

First the store was under construction but clean. No big deal but Just left the flagship Nordstrom store in Seattle. We got great service at the Mac counter but the ladies department was horrible!!! The sales person stayed on the phone the entire time we were browsing! I am so disappointed!! Not going back! I will stick with the Scottsdale... More

I remember when there was only one Nordstrom store and how things have changed. This is a massive store with lots to purchase. Quality has diminished through the years but that is to be expect as price trumps quality these days. There are some good buys but be prepared to spend much more on the average for things you can...

We used to shop at Nordstrom quite regularly back home, but over the years their mix of clothes has changed and got a bit "too young" for us. But since we were in Seattle we had to stop at their flagship store. One product I missed was their chocolate truffles. Our local store stopped selling them years ago, but I... More

If you're a serious shopper like I am, then you'll need to be sure to visit the Nordstrom Flagship store in the West Lake Center in Seattle! The shopping is amazing and the store is fabulous! It's exciting to think you're shopping where everything first began for Nordstrom!

I don't usually spend $75 up per skirt or blouse or well anything. I hit the sale items. They have some lovely items even in the plus sizes - anything 14 and above. Lots of floors to look through. I'm not great with crowds and I have to be in the right mood to shop. The staff was friendly.

I originally wanted to go to this store because it's the original. But once I got to Seattle, I realized I actually needed more clothes. The store was under renovation when I went shopping there but it still looked fairly nice on the inside. The customer service was perfect. I needed to buy several days worth of outfits and Ali,...

I regularly shop at Nordstrom at home. While in Seattle on a business trip, I had to stop by the flagship store. While the service was extraordinary as always, I wasn't overly impressed with the store itself. There were quite a few designers that my home store doesn't carry- that was nice. However, the store itself was not exactly a... More

This is a fantastic store. It's at the end of the monorail line so it's hard to miss if you're coming from the Space Needle. Believe it or not, there are some great bargains here, as well as uber-top-of-the-line expensive items and everything in-between. It's always on our list when we're in Seattle.
