Community Events: Nordstrom Opening Gala

Hundreds of guests gathered for an evening gala to celebrate the new, relocated Nordstrom store at the Tacoma Mall. The 138,000 square-foot, two-level store features a saltwater fish tank, Brow and Manicure Bars, complimentary personal shoppers, home accessories department and fitting rooms that are chic and have the ambiance of a stylish living room.

The fashionable fete benefited two local charities, the Tacoma Art Museum and the Museum of Glass. Guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and buffets, informal modeling of the season’s most inspirational looks for men and women, live entertainment from the Dudley Manlove Quartet and the opportunity to do some “sneak preview” shopping.
