With the sad news that all Nordstrom stores in Canada are shutting down, many Canadians are hoping for Zellers to open in its place. Others would like to see Halloween costume stores and we’re all curious as to what ends up opening!
HBC is already planning on reopening Zellers stores across Canada but they were going to start by opening them within The Bay. Here is the new Zellers Instagram page. I personally would love to see Zellers back in our malls and with Nordstrom shutting down this is HBC’s chance to get some good real estate. HBC please do it!

Nordstrom is closing all 13 stores in Canada. Nordstrom currently has six Nordstrom stores and seven Nordstrom Rack stores. This also means that all 2,500 Canadian Nordstrom employees will sadly lose their jobs. Nordstrom opened in Canada in 2014 and is shutting down due to declining sales and inability to become profitable.
What are your thoughts on this? What would you like to see replace the closing Nordstrom stores?
