CAO exit

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

It will be interesting to see how Nordstrom reports on the fortunes of the Manhattan FLS, if they will break it out like the Anniversary Sale or at least answer specific questions on it in the earnings call. Up to now they have been very open and... —  read more

End of an era

A new perspective on retail has emerged lately, one that is entirely lethal to the old one embodied by an establishment firm such as Nordstrom. Up to now, e-commerce has been proposed as something more convenient and more efficient than... —  read more

Can I use these apps yet? Or are they integrated into production Nordstrom sales-ey store systems yet? Are the devs all onboard, drawing a paycheck? What’s the plan for this nonsense? Another dumb purchase? ROI or more goodwill... —  read more

Nordstrom Manhattan nightmare

The out-of-towners will lose it all. Take the super-tall One57 tower, completed in 2014 and considered the forerunner of Billionaires’ Row, a once largely commercial corridor around 57th Street in Midtown, which remains about 20% unsold, with... —  read more

Opinions on the new COO

Is he a baller, a shot-caller? 20-inch blades on his Impala? Can he make a real difference in his new role? Can the last, best retailer be saved?

Comment I found online re Amazon

“I know a guy at AMZ and ‘Nordstrom K–ler’ project is going strong in terms of digital sizing women thru 3D scanning.” They are coming for you. Looks like Forever 21 will file Chapter 11 soon as well. How will Nordstrom fight the evil empire?

Noticed a few things from the 10-Q released today

No stock buybacks in Q2, stock cut nearly in half. They still have dry powder to use to prop up the stock and give execs an exit, almost half the buyback allowance is still left, with no time limit. Nothing changed on risks, etc, kept referencing... —  read more

Good earns on weak revenues

Even with sales off, Nordstrom beats on earnings — nice job, guys. Does Nordstrom still have a VP whose job is to cut x% costs in various areas and ways each year? 1,800 overpaid SEs makes a pretty fat target.

Laughing at the Board of Directors

How fitting that these chuckleheads turn down an earnest offer — at, what, $51/sh? — from the good Nordstrom clan, only to see their investments cut in half. What a gaggle of greedy losers! What, did they think $JWN would spiral back to $80? ... —  read more

That would be the time to do it, especially if there are any problems with the web store, or if the sale underwhelms. I bet Nordstrom could cut 1,000 from Technology alone and not even miss them. 2H 2019 should be brutal to the core business, they... —  read more
