Retail Recon: Anniversary Sale on Opening Day

Planning ahead is no small feat. Paying bills, showing up to your dentist appointment, having a dinner reservation locked and loaded when your wedding anniversary rolls around—we find these side effects of modern life counterintuitive to man’s most basic instinct, i.e., to kick back with a cold one and live in the now.

Luckily, our annual Anniversary Sale makes getting ahead of the game second nature. Fact: Besides being our best sale event of the year, Anniversary is also a fall preview. We give you a chance to score leather jackets, work boots, dark denim, and everything else you’ll need for cool weather at reduced prices NOW, in the middle of summer, before they ever hit the floor at full price.

You can thank us later. For now, keep reading to see the Anniversary items that caught our eye while roaming our flagship store on opening day.

Military details and pattern mixing in The Rail Dept.

Don’t call it a clearance. The items on sale during Anniversary are all brand new.

Leather jacket x cool T-shirt = night out done right.

Backpacks, joggers and leopard—oh my.

T-shirts on sale? We might have a few…

Denim on denim—on denim.

We’ve even got killer deals in Designer Collections—from Rag & Bone and more.

Our sign department speaks the truth.

Finding a great deal on a new belt is a cinch. (See what we did there?)

Boxers or briefs? Either way, the time to re-stock your underwear drawer is now.

Did we mention there are shoes on sale? We’re digging these Prefontaine-ish Nikes.

More Nikes—including this retro runner in black and gold and fresh pairs for the gym.

New Balance and Converse showed up to the party, too.

Not in need of sneakers? Plenty more to choose from—like these 1901 wingtips.

Monks, loafers, longwings—our dress shoe department covers all the bases.

Boots for days—from Wolverine, Red Wing and more.

This two-tone suede/leather Timberland chukka is exclusive to Nordstrom.

Behind the scenes at our Seattle flagship store: A continuous stream of pizza deliveries helps fuel our sales associates as they assist the throngs of Anniversary Sale shoppers. Cheers, comrades.
