Nordstrom Opens at Americana at Brand

Nordstrom Inc. opened a full-line store at the Americana at Brand in Glendale, Calif., after being located across the street at the Glendale Galleria.

The Americana Nordstrom includes Topshop and Topman departments, which will offer fashions from the popular U.K. fashion retailer. It will be the first Topshop department in a Nordstrom in LA County. There are several Nordstrom Topshops in Orange County. Another new Nordstrom department is via C, which features fashion from new designers such as Rachel Zoe, Helmut Lang, Current Elliott, Alice + Olivia and Rag & Bone, a company statement said.

The new store also offers its consumers services such as personal stylists, complimentary gift boxes, in-store alterations and tailor shop, bra fitters, and prosthesis fitters. There is a restaurant, Bar Verde, which is a farm-to-table eatery, as well as a café, Ebar.

The 135,000-square-foot, three-level Nordstrom features a glass exterior to bring more natural light into the store. It maintains entrances on Brand Boulevard and Caruso Avenue, and its neighbors include Barnes & Noble and Trattoria Amici. It is currently the only department store located at Americana at Brand. The luxury retail center offers a range of retailers such as Urban Outfitters, XXI Forever, True Religion, H&M, Anthropologie, Madewell and American Eagle Outfitters. Another important mall tenant is Barneys New York Co-op, which will change nameplates to Barneys New York next year.

Before opening, Nordstrom produced a gala party at the Americana and raised $107,600 for nonprofits Hillsides, an education and services provider for at-risk youth and their families, and Ascencia, a group with the mission to end homelessness in the greater Glendale area.
