Chanel at Nordstrom's Topanga Store???

  1. Hi all. My understanding is the "new" Nordstrom store at Topanga Canyon (Valley NW of LA) will carry Chanel. I believe the store opens on Friday of this week. Look forward to any IRL reports...
  2. I know this is in the Chanel thread but will they also be carrying Gucci? I'm looking for the agenda and the other Nordstrom does not have agendas.
  3. I believe the store will carry Gucci as well. (Trying to recall what I read in the LA times, but I believe Gucci and Chanel were both listed.)
  4. Great! Thanks! I will give them a call on Friday.
  5. The store is now open. Yes, they carry Chanel & Gucci.
    Here's a press release on what the new store has to offer.

  7. WOW that is awesome!!! i'm looking forward to seeing the new nordstrom. it's just across the street from my uncle's yogurt shop. i think i'm going there tomorrow :smile:
  8. yeah... now we need one to sell chanel and gucci in my area- WASHINGTON DC.. So far the west coast store.. what about the east coast !!
    lol- maybe I ough to write to Nordstroms about that..- Think they'd listen..
  9. That will be a nice addition. Even though we have Neimans and the Chanel store here in Orange County it would be nice to have another option. It would be great if Nordstroms at SCP carried Chanel (maybe too much competition from the boutique).;)
