Yesterday, Nordstrom opened its shiny new $$$$ New York flagship store near Columbus Circle. It’s a seven-level, 320,000-square foot behemoth that’s got something for everyone – from foodies (six eating and drinking venues, Russ) to beauty junkies (14,000 square feet of beauty products spread across two floors, plus services from tailoring, blowouts to Botox) to trendsetters (It’s got all the classic luxury department store brands, including Fendi, Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta.). But if you build it…will they come? Keep in mind, the project was set in motion in 2012, long before bricks-and-mortars took a body blow so skeptics are…skeptical, pointing to the demise of Lord & Taylor, Henri Bendel, and others.
