What's all the hype about?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is probably one of the most highly-anticipated shopping events in the retail industry, and for good reason! Every July, sought-after brands bring you the hottest styles for the upcoming fall season at 30-40% off the original price! It's the best time to get a jumpstart on your fall wardrobe and purchase brand new merchandise that is exclusive to Nordstrom before it goes back up to full price on August 7th!
How to shop
Early Access is July 13-20, which means Nordstrom cardholders (debit or credit) can shop the sale BEFORE it opens up to the public on July 21st! Not a cardholder? No problem! It's not too late to apply, which will get you access into the sale. On July 21st, everyone (not just cardholders) has an opportunity to shop all of the fabulous deals!
A Few Tips
Merchandise featured in the Anniversary catalogue is usually going to sell out first, so if there's something you're interested in, don't wait to pull the trigger! My piece of advice is if you're thinking about it, just buy it! Nordstrom has the best return policy in the business, so if you get it home and you're not totally into it, you can always return it to any store or ship it back in the mail. That way if it sells out, you won't have any regrets wishing you had bought it in the first place!
If a popular item does sell out, don't lose hope completely! Sometimes, the vendor will re-stock midway through the event, so keep checking online or call your local store to see if they have it. You can also call your closest Nordstrom and ask an employee to check if other stores have a particular item you're looking for. Just because it's showing as 'sold out' online, doesn't mean there might not be a few floating around out there!
Last but not least, happy shopping!! xo
