IMG_0622 (1)Seattle-based retailer Nordstrom plans to open up its first store in New York City in the coming days at a time when other retailers are shuttering their establishments.

Nordstrom, which was founded in 1901 by John W. Nordstrom (who was born in Sweden as Johan Nordström) and Carl F. Wallin, began as a shoe retailer and moved into other areas of fashion.

The store, which will offer men’s clothing, shoes, and accessories, will be located at 57th Street and Broadway. While the store will have regular hours, a customer in need of an item outside of those hours need only place the order online and proceed to the store entrance, where he will be met by a Nordstrom employee.

The store will emphasize the type of service it is famous for but it will also offer high-tech options, such as a kiosk for returning products and a system that will display bespoke suit options on an avatar of the customer.

Nordstrorm is not stopping with a three-story men’s store: It plans to open a seven-story women’s store across the street in 2019.
