Growing up in Mall Country — aka Bergen County, NJ — I know my way around a department store. Nordstrom has been (and probably always will be) a stalwart of finds for me and Nordstrom Rack is one of my most-shopped stores. Well, if you’re familiar with Nordstrom like I am, you look forward to summer, because it’s Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale.
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and why does it matter so much? Well, unlike traditional sales, where stores discount items that have been around for a bit, Nordstrom changes things up. Shoppers gain access to brand new items, ones that have not hit the floor and are launching in the fall, at a discounted price. They stay at that price for the entirety of the sale before going to their original MSRP afterward. That means you’re getting newly launched goods for a deal before they even make it into stores.
We’ve rounded up some top-tier items to pick up while they’re on sale and before their prices go up for good. From home goods to clothing, there’s something for everyone in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
