If you need your brand-name fix for items made by Juicy Couture, Quiksilver, Calvin Klein, Nordstrom Rack is your store. The prices are still not Wal-Mart like, but they are big markdowns from original prices. But honestly, I'd rather shop in TJ Maxx or Target than this place. It is as low end as it gets. I felt like a trash-picker when I shopped here. The clothes were all apparently returned or rejected items. Some of them were really weird. Green and purple Nike shirts? $7 throw pillows that are like rubber? Excuse me, but I have trouble believing the real Nordstrom would sell these items. And the shoe department? What a shock! Yes, you can get big markdowns- if you can find anything you like. The shelves are overstocked with a trash pile of shoes. They're nice shoes, but I don't feel like exposing myself to hundreds of allergens just to look for them. Luckily, the staff are courteous and they take pride in their work. The costume jewelry is decent, just that's all I can say. Wow, Nordstrom put their name on this.
