Nordstrom has figured out what it takes to survive as a department store in the brave new world of on-line retail: customer service. Every department store (and other retail establishment) will yammer on about customer service, yet Nordstrom knows how to deliver it. I came here twice on a recent vacation and noticed these things that I would almost never... More

We did some holiday shopping at Nordstrom on the Magnificent Mile in Chicago last week. I always take longer than my husband who hates to shop! Low and behold, the men's floor has a great little bar that he could sit at and watch sports well I browsed. When I was satisfied, I joined him there for a glass of... More

Nordstrom's has great customer service and high quality products. This location is located just off of Michigan Avenue at Grand. Their men's sale is worth seeking out. Store is very pleasant and not usually super crowded.

Located in a small with an entrance off Michigan at Grand, this upscale clothing store has something that is missing in most retail...customer service. Attentive sales staff are well dispersed around the store, ready to help. This is NOT a discount store, but a high quality store with a huge selection.

If you to get some last minutes things before an event stopping here is a must. Their employees go out of their way to make a difference in your shopping experiences.

This place was spectacular. Everything from the $2.50 shoe shine service, complimentary make up for my wife, attentiveness from the employees and just the upscale feel inside.

Attended meeting. Annual sale at Nordstrom. Good Prices. Purchased Sperry Top siders for about $74 which included tax (more than 10%). Didn't have my size but are supposed to send to me. Very busy place. Easy access as off of Michigan Ave

My visits to Chicago are usually focused on shopping. To save time I identify what I want online first. On this trip I was on the hunt for a particular shade of Tom Ford nail polish. I tried three other stores on Michigan Avenue first--without success. As a last resort, I checked Nordstrom's website. Much to my surprise Nordstrom had... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
