Seattle-based specialty retailer Nordstrom, Inc. opened the doors to Nordstrom Domain Northside, the company’s second full-line store in Austin, Texas, on Friday, September 30. The two-level, 127,500 square-foot store features a comprehensive offering of popular apparel and accessories for men, women and children, home goods and more.

Nordstrom is part of the just-opened, 600,000-square foot mixed-use development, which also includes the Archer Hotel, as well such stores as Bonobos, Kiehl’s, Suit Supply, Frye, Warby Parker, and Will Leather Goods.

The new Nordstrom store also features the company’s latest design concept, which includes more windows to incorporate natural light and connect the shopping experience to the outside, along with a number of special services and amenities including Curbside Pickup and Same Day Delivery as well as an Buy Online Pick Up In Store service counter with dressing rooms that make it easy for customers to try on online purchases, an in-store alteration and tailor shop, and a leather embossing machine to customize leather goods. It also features two food offerings: Bazille, a contemporary interpretation of bistro cuisine including a full bar; and the Ebar, for handcrafted coffee drinks and grab-and-go food options.

Said Shannon Ricca, Nordstrom Domain Northside store manager: “We’ve enjoyed being part of the Austin community for the past 13 years and hope our new location makes it more convenient for customers who live closer to North Austin to shop with us. We can’t wait to show our existing and new customers what we have in store!”

In anticipation of the opening, Nordstrom underwrote Austin City Social – an opening party that raised more than $35,000 for Austin Symphony BATS (Be at the Symphony) and the next generation of Austin music lovers. More than 1,000 guests were in attendance to enjoy fall fashion presentations, bites and beverages, as well as live music from locals Tameka Jones and local low grass band Sour Bridges.
