I’m stunned. I’d heard and thought there was no possible way. I’ll have to move now. I’m not kidding when I say some days it was the only reason I stayed.

What the heck... Anchorage has had a store almost as long as Nordstrom’s have been in business. This is a travesty.

They will keep the Rack open which is a good thing.

This store was probably the best one in Anchorage - it's a big loss for any shopper...

I guess the times are changing, more online shopping, I guess...

Also, the Rack - you guys will see me more often...

The ADN just had a story on this - here it goes:

Nordstrom will close its downtown Anchorage store at the Fifth Avenue Mall in September, the company announced Wednesday.

The store’s last day of business will be Sept. 13. It is Nordstrom’s only full-line store in Alaska.

“Looking at our needs in the Anchorage market, we decided it made the most sense to close this store and focus on serving customers at the nearby Rack store as well as online,” the statement said.

Nordstrom Rack has a location in Midtown Anchorage. No changes are planned for that store, Nordstrom spokeswoman Emily Sterken said in an email.

The downtown Nordstrom opened in 1975. About 170 people work at the 97,000-square-foot store.

Department stores across the country have been closing for years as consumers shift to online shopping.

It’s not a surprise that the local Nordstrom is closing, said Andrew Halcro, executive director of the Anchorage Community Development Authority.

“It is a sign of the changing retail landscape but I’d also argue it’s really a sign of a struggling economy” in Anchorage, he said.
