What's your best guess when the stores open again? It ain't going to be for two weeks like they are saying.

How do furloughs work?

I'm mostly interested to know if there is any guarantee that those affected will be invited back to work once the situation settles down? Is that a certainty or can Nordstrom simply decide at some point to make the furloughs permanent (turn them into... —  read more

Nordstrom will survive 2020

It won’t be easy, it is going to take a grim seriousness like what we are seeing at Macy’s, but Nordstrom will survive. Geevy once reminded me that it takes a lot to end a retailer, as long as the brand is intact and there is income, someone can... —  read more

Since I know you guys lurk here. Will Nordstrom release an 8-K report any time soon detailing the company's exposure, if any, to the Extell development Central Park Tower? Does Nordstrom Corporation have a stake in or share the risk for the... —  read more 


Sales is zero. They could have rented out the stores for quarantine and made some rent money. King County wouldn't have to buy some flea infested hotel for quarantine. Yes, stay behind the VPN until your VP tells you otherwise.

Will Nordstrom cut deep enough?

Do you really employ 1,800+ software engineers, at salary levels per that old Blind boast post? How quickly can you slash capex and expense to staunch the bleeding? If your internet fulfillment web site and back end really demand so many... —  read more 

West Coast fulfillment center

I need to catch up. So the last I had heard, it was 2016 and Blake was apologizing to the City of Visalia for getting cold feet and mothballing the planned west coast FC. This would complete the set — Cedar Rapids, IA, somewhere in eastern PA... —  read more 

Bare minimum corporate staff

So I was just screwing around, I googled “Nordstrom Starbucks Nike Vice President” just to see if a certain talentless someone would come up — yup. But another person was listed who has the opposite trajectory, ending up at Nordstrom in 2017 as... —  read more 

Why do we need so many software developers?

It can't be true that Nordstrom has 1,800!!! software developers, can it? What in the world do we need them for and what in the world do they do all day if that number is true? Frankly, if there are that many, then that is THE PERFECT WAY to cut... —  read more 

All eyes on the new FLS
