Nordstrom’s newest store, at 191,000 square feet, held a pre-opening gala at their Yorkdale location on Wednesday featuring shopping, fashion shows, as well as delicious food including signature cocktails, savoury dinner and amazing desserts. We enjoyed live music by Sean Jones, celebrity DJ Russell Peters, DJ Jazzy Jeff, while also doing a bit of shopping.
All proceeds, which totalled over $450,000, 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 multiple fashion shows showcased on the escalators and throughout the store. An interesting show that lasted half an hour each and showcased some amazing women’s and men’s fashions.
Nordstrom Yordale officially opens to the public on October 21st, with other locations in Toronto to include Sherway Gardens (opening in 2017) and a Nordstrom Rack (debuting in 2018), in addition to their first Toronto store at CF Eaton’s Centre in downtown Toronto.
We would like to thank Lynn Bessoudo-Senior Specialist, Public Relations-SickKids Foundation for the invitation to this event.
