Great news for budget-conscious fashionistas, nordstromrack.com yours and my favorite purveyor of low-priced designer wear and big name labels has gone on-line. Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc., (NYSE: JWN) announced today in a press release that is has launched, a new e-commerce site and mobile app, built on a shared platform with HauteLook, Nordstrom's flash sale business. The new site lets you shop for Rack merchandise alongside HauteLook flash sale events.
While for some of us it’s not as much fun as browsing through the real thing say at the Beverly Connection or in Woodland Hills, the new site is kind of fun , especially if you hate trying on clothes and shoes. You can shop for everything they cover in the real stores with ease and comfort
