SEATTLE, Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With the goal of being closer to customers to better serve them on their terms, leading fashion retailer Nordstrom is opening two additional Nordstrom Local service hubs in Newport Beach and Manhattan Beach. The 1,193 square foot Nordstrom Local Newport Beach (2043 Westcliff Drive) will open Friday, Nov. 6, and the 1,886 square foot Nordstrom Local Manhattan Beach (451 Manhattan Beach Blvd.) will open in the coming months.
"Opening Nordstrom Local service hubs in the Los Angeles area is part of the continuation of our market strategy in one of our largest markets to provide customers with greater access to merchandise selection and faster delivery while increasing convenience and connection through our services," said Ken Worzel, chief operating officer at Nordstrom. "Nordstrom Local customers who engage with our services at a Local including curbside pick-up, returns, alterations and styling spend more than two-and-a-half times compared to other customers."
At Nordstrom Local Newport Beach and Manhattan Beach customers will have access to the following services:
- Order Pickup: Order it today from Nordstrom.com, NordstromRack.com or HauteLook.com and pick it up in your neighborhood.
- Contactless Curbside Pickup: Place an order online and choose curbside pick-up. When you arrive at your Nordstrom Local, we'll bring your order out and place it in the trunk of your car.
- Fast and Easy Returns: Dropoff your returns from Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Haute Look, Trunk Club and other online retailers- we will take care of the rest.
- Alterations: Get expert alterations on your purchases from Nordstrom, other retailers or items from your own closet. Need it fast? Enjoy same-day hems, sleeve shortening, sizing adjustments, simple repairs, and more. Our alterations experts will make sure you have the perfect fit.
- Styling: Our expert stylists can help with everything from styling tips to helping advise on a complete wardrobe refresh at no cost to you.
- Gift wrapping: Leave the wrapping to us! In addition to complimentary signature silver boxes, Nordstrom Local offers complimentary gift-wrapping for all Nordstrom purchases. Gift-wrapped items can also be picked up in-store or via Curbside Pickup. Plus, our gift wrap is 100% recyclable. Non-Nordstrom purchases can be wrapped for $8 per package.
- BEAUTYCYCLE: Bring in your empty beauty packaging to be recycled for free with Nordstrom BEAUTYCYCLE.
