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.

As a local, there is pride in showing the FIRST Nordstrom store to guest & family. BTY: it is Nordstrom - NOT Nordstroms ! There is no "S". Macy's has an "S". J.C. Penny's has an "S".

This is the flagship store--Nordstrom central. I hail from back in the Nordstrom Best era when this store was much more old school in display and layout. While the modern facility is pretty, I find myself looking for the old departments as I ride the escalator. I loved the smell of the old store and the original focus on shoes.... More

I don't normally review shops but this one is a step above the usual. The coffee shop is great for breakfast or a healthy snack with your coffee and opens a couple of hours before the rest of the store. The concierge service is excellent. They will look after your luggage whilst you shop. The range of shopping is great... More

Had a business meeting downstairs in the restaurant. Food and ambiance were excellent, although it was a little loud for a business meeting (because it was so busy). I had a salad with chicken. It was phenomenal! They pounded out a chicken breast and fried it, then served a nice veggie/green salad on top. Service was also great. We didn't... More

Very nice and upmarket store with virtually everything of good brands. Lot of attentive staff unlike other stores. Also they have a great bar in case the husbands can have a drink while the ladies shop!

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
