If you know me at all, you know I'm a huge fan of Nordstrom.
Not only are their products superior and they stand behind their merchandise, they have the BEST customer service hands down.
Price matching and adjusting, no limit, no question returns, and friendly, and helpful, knowledgeable sales people. These are all reasons I shop there.
I think there is an assumption that Nordstrom is very expensive. Yes, they sell higher end, designer items, but you can easily find items on sale (or not!) for the same prices as retailers such as Macys, Gap, and even Target.
