Today is a big day in Cherry Creek — Nordstrom is finally opening after months of renovations designed to strip out the Lord and Taylor look in favor of the ambiance and feel of a Nordstrom’s store. The store may not be the chain’s biggest, but it is expected to be its nicest, with a wide range of services. Like what? Girlfriend dressing rooms, even apartment sized dressing rooms, where the gals can get together, try on clothes and schmooze all at the same time. That doesn’t impress me too much. But 1/4 acre of shoes? Now you’re talking.
