About Nordstrom Department Stores:
Nordstrom was founded in 1901 by John W. Nordstrom and Carl F. Wallin. Originally it was called “Wallin & Nordstrom“, and it was a small shoe store based in Seattle. It was successful enough to open up a second store twenty years later.
The name was changed to “Nordstrom” when Carl F. Wallin retired in 1929 and sold his shares to Nordstrom’s heirs, whom had taken over running the company. Nordstrom remained exclusively a shoe company until it acquired the Seattle-based clothing store Best Apparel in 1963.
Nordstrom temporarily changed their name to “Nordstrom Best”, which lasted until 1973 when the company changed its name back to “Nordstrom”.
From 1975 onward Nordstrom has focused on expansion: first into Alaska, and then California. There are currently 271 Nordstrom stores across the United States. The company employees over 62,500 employees.
Beginning in 2014, Nordstrom will begin opening stores in Canada. The locations include major cities like Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver.
