🐠, who here shops at Nordstrom? Where will you put it among H&M, Macys, Kohls or other big box retailers in fashion, trendyness and potential to not go JCP or Sears’s route of going bankrupt in near future?

Nordstrom is substantially better than any of those stores and in a completely different class of retail.


Go do your own work, look at stuff Nordstrom sells and see if there are comparable items on Amazon. Answer, not really. They deal in designer which no one wants to buy on Amazon if no other reason risk of fakes. They’re further in my opinion the only department store that has made a credible attempt at modernizing for digital era. Whether that’s enough remains to be seen.


I actually shop at Nordstrom and use their Trunk Club service. Amazon isn't checking for that market. Why does this feel like a grad school discussion question being answered. Lol.


Cos SM2 is a jerk. Get a life SM2.

Did you mean Nordstrom Rack? Flagship Nordstrom is in the same bucket as Neiman or Saks, though that bucket isn’t doing that much better (e.g., Barneys, Bergdorf).


Yes Nordstrom rack as well.

is this for a project?

Yes for a project called new job offer.


They are higher end than any of those listed retailers but probably on their way towards JCP and Sears in terms of financial performance. Look at their stock in last couple of weeks.

I’ve been shopping at Nordstrom since I was a teen (30s now) and it does not belong in the same sentence as the stores mentioned. Some cities don’t get the high end Nordys but it’s still up there with NM, Barneys, Saks etc. Nordstrom Rack sort of ruined the brand IMO though.

Rack saved them tbh.


Nordstrom is closer to a Bloomingdales, neimans and saks. Nordstrom carries a barysty of different brands including some luxury. There customer service is axing which is why I tend to buy from them rather than the brand itself because I know I can return the product at any time if it gets damaged fir my money back or a replacement. Most places leave you in the dust after 30 days. They also are known for their signature events like the anniversary sale which is an semi exclusive sale that Nordstrom cardholders get access to first before the public. Exclusivity I think is important to a brand. H&M is fast fashion, Kohl’s is fit paying the lowest prices and stacking discounts, and Macy’s is more of a mid-tier accessible sulfide similar to a Nordstrom but doesn’t have the brands or exclusivity Nordstrom does. I would say Nordstrom is like a “Tory Burch”, mean it’s still accessible but on the higher side of luxury, while Macy’s is like a “Michael Kors”

Yay!! I got promoted from Manager to Sr. Consultant today


Hi 🐠, I‘m since 2 years in Consulting and was mainly staffed on tech implementation projects (e.g. Anaplan). I have no tech background (business bachelor/master degree + few years banking work experience) but I realized that I actually enjoy the technical topics. I am thinking about taking some tech courses or even a degree to build a knowledge foundation. Any tips regarding interesting courses/degrees or has someone already been in a similar situation? Looking for some (tech) mentors here :)


Thoughts on Anaplan?

That moment when you hear a 300 lb man behind you snoring like a beast and you sighed with relief that you don't sit beside him. Guess who sits beside you on your connecting flight? #iwishiwasjoking


Just found WordArt in a pitch deck. Yikes.
