Nordstroms-New-Store-Has-Beer-but-No-Clothing

Retail giant Nordstrom just released details on Nordstrom Local, a small retail concept store opening in LA later this year. The 3,000-square-foot store focuses on a more individually tailored experience that will have you sipping beer, wine or espresso as you interact with Personal Stylists and have your clothes tailored. The one big thing that seems to have everyone troubled is the fact that Nordstrom Local won’t actually have any dedicated inventory of clothing or accessories for you to purchase. Even if there are items to try on in the styling suite or one of the eight dressing rooms, purchases will still need to be transferred from another Nordstrom store or shipped from Nordstrom.com. In all honesty, it seems like more of a Trunk Club outpost that will also serve as a pickup and dropoff point for Nordstrom goods, but that’s not a bad thing if the location of Nordstrom Local is convenient for you.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
