If you already loved the Nordstrom at Ala Moana Center then you’re in for a treat. Today at 6pm they close the doors on their space in the Mauka Wing and will open in their new Ewa Wing location on Friday, March 11 at 9:30am. The store will feature all of the things you’d expect from your favorite department store plus a few extras including phone charging stations and items from local designers. The women’s shoe department alone will satisfy the desires of any shopaholic. If you can pry yourself away long enough to peruse the cosmetics, ready-to-wear or activewear you won’t be disappointed.
In addition to apparel, accessories, cosmetics and home, the three level, 186,000 square-foot space features four eateries: the Hawaii-exclusive Gelato Bar, Ebar, Habitant and Ruscello. If you’re already pining for the old Marketplace Cafe, never fear. Many of the Marketplace favorites will be on the Ruscello menu including the tomato basil soup and several of the salads.
If you just can’t wait to see it for yourself, here’s a sneak peek from the media tour yesterday morning. Needless to say, the new Nordstrom is worth visiting.
