Nordstrom Opening Gala @Eaton Centre (Wed.,Sept.14th,2016)
Nordstrom Eaton Centre, at 220,000 square feet, held a pre-opening gala at their Eaton Centre store on Wednesday featuring shopping, fashion shows, as well as delicious food. signature cocktails, savour dinner and amazing desserts. We enjoyed live music by The Dwayne Gretzky, and we also did a bit of shopping.
All proceeds, which totalled over $270,000, benefit St. Michael’s Hospital Foundation, Toronto’s leader in critical and trauma care; Women’s College Hospital Foundation, Canada’s leader in advancing healthcare for women; Covenant House Toronto, which serves homeless youth; the state-of-the-art Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario; Humber River Hospital Foundation, which is currently focused on equipping a new hospital; and the globally renowned children’s hospital, Hospital for Sick Children’s Sick Kids Foundation.
There were two fashion shows under the white tents, held across the street. An interesting show that lasted half an hour each with high tech lasers, smoke, and different colour schemes. The featured brands carried by the store were showcased but the brand names were not shown on the big screen.
Nordstrom Eaton Centre officially opens to the public on September 16. Other locations in Toronto include Yorkdale (opening in October) and Sherway Gardens (opens in 2017). A Nordstrom Rack will debut in 2018.
We would like to thank John Bailey, Nordstrom PR for the invitation to this event.
