Examples of Nordstrom in a Sentence

  1. Lisa Sharkey:

    Yesterday I was really reluctant to say anything publicly about how upsetting it was to be in Nordstrom and see these pajamas, which look extremely similar to what the concentration camp prisoners at Auschwitz and other camps were forced to wear during the Holocaust. But then I realized that if I do n’t say something, maybe nobody will say anything.

  2. Geevy Thomas:

    I feel fortunate to have met these young men and their families. I appreciate the opportunity to listen to their concerns and offer our sincere apologies on behalf of Nordstrom Rack, i also want to thank the young men for their poise in dealing with local law enforcement and the police themselves for handling the situation professionally.

  3. Aaron Liao:

    You can say to it ‘Find me men’s shorts’ and I can give you turn-by-turn walking directions to every instance of men’s shirts, whether they are inside Bloomingdales, Abercrombie and Fitch, or Nordstrom, it’s amazingly accurate. We boast one meter of accuracy, which is effectively the difference between leading you to men’s button-down shirts and the casual t-shirts that are right next to them. Three feet of accuracy means I can lead you directly to the soap versus the shampoo that’s right next to it.

  4. Nancy Pelosi:

    It's absolutely outrageous. Obviously it cannot continue, but the fact is that there is an attitude of lawlessness in our country that springs from I don't know where… and we cannot have that lawlessness become the norm.
