Pop-In Store Visit: TMRW TGTHR

As much fun as we have building our Pop-In Shops on the Internet each month, you haven’t had the full experience until you’ve “popped in” (see what we did there?) to a real-life Pop-In@Nordstrom—i.e., offline and hands-on, at one of eight Nordstrom stores.

It’s the only way to fully grasp how unique the treasures are that Olivia Kim (our Director of Creative Projects and Pop-In Shop curator) searches far and wide for. Keep reading for a look inside our latest shop—TMRW TGTHR, a collection of goods that do good—and to find the participating Nordstrom location nearest you.

The following Nordstrom stores host our themed Pop-In Shops each month:
• Bellevue Square (Bellevue, WA)
• Downtown Seattle (Seattle, WA)
• Garden State Plaza (Paramus, NJ)
• NorthPark Center (Dallas, TX)
• Oakbrook Center (Oak Brook, IL)
• The Plaza at King of Prussia (King of Prussia, PA)
• San Francisco Centre (San Francisco, CA)
• Tysons Corner Center (McLean, VA)

Keeping with the socially responsible theme of TMRW TGTHR, even our shelves and decorations are upcycled! You might remember this toothy fellow from our Surf City Pop-In Shop.

Don’t live near one of the store locations listed above? A mini road trip might be in order. (Our friend Aurora James, founder of Brother Vellies, made the trek!)

The four circular icons on our TMRW TGTHR signs represent four kinds of socially responsible products:
community-focused, eco-friendly, upcycled and artisanal.
