At the beginning of next week a handful of Nordstrom stores across the US will embark on a partnership to stock British fashion labels Topshop and Topman. Nordstrom in Oakbrook will be the only store in Illinois other other than the main store on Michigan Ave to sell the brands' merchandise.
Similarly to Chicago's Topshop and Topman flagship, which was the second in the Nation, the departments at Nordstrom will have mannequins, visual merchandising and store fixturing supplied from the UK, and be placed in high profile locations within the men's and women's apparel areas. And if you need another reason to look forward to the partnership, Oabrook will carry limited-edition pieces created especially for Nordstrom.
