This place was spectacular. Everything from the $2.50 shoe shine service, complimentary make up for my wife, attentiveness from the employees and just the upscale feel inside.

Attended meeting. Annual sale at Nordstrom. Good Prices. Purchased Sperry Top siders for about $74 which included tax (more than 10%). Didn't have my size but are supposed to send to me. Very busy place. Easy access as off of Michigan Ave

What I love about Nordstrom Rack is I can find designer label brands with sale prices for 80% off. I bought several dress shoes here as well that are worth 50% less than in another popular store. Great bargain prices and the items are in great shape too.

If you are shopping for shoes, ask for Ashley M. She was terrific, very knowledgeable about the merchandise, as well as patient. Made the experience fun. I am a 5.5 and they have a huge selection, I purchased a wonderful pair of boots and the perfect shoes for a wedding I was attending. And shipped the boots home, free.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
