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.

This is the flagship store for Nordstrom. Located in the heart of downtown. If you are visiting Seattle and a fan of Nordstrom then you will want to make your way there. It's an easy walk from most places in the city.

This is a nice Nordstroms. We visited it while on vacation in Seattle. We were able to walk to it from our hotel. We had good luck shopping there! They had good sales going on too.

I was excited to see "the mothership" but oddly disappointed. Granted it was under construction, but I was thinking their shoe department would have been bigger. It seemed to be the same size, perhaps even smaller than Nordstrom Houston Galleria and Austin Barton Creek. We just walked on through and went to Nordstrom Rack next door. Which reminded me of...

This store is nicely located with walking distance from our hotel. There are many stores to shop in this area, however Nordstrom has made a name for itself!

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

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!
