oh, yes, there will be shopping

the only two things that i miss here in new york are portillo's hot dogs and nordstrom.

i remember my first trip to a nordstrom in CA, i also remember my first trip to the first nordstrom in IL. in fact, when i was little, i said i didn't want to go to heaven unless there was a nordstrom there.

my devotion to that store has no boundaries.

but, my friends, there is one on the way. in fact, it's "imminent."

nordstrom, how i love thee!!!

lets just hope that it's not crappy and an overrun, understocked disappointment like trader joe's turned out to be...

When im feeling down, when I need a pick me up I go to my rock, my saviour...Nordstrom. Oh, how I spend all of my money on her.

This Nordstrom of which you speak, would they sell such items as high-end baseball caps?

Otherwise it is going to take all of my acting skills to feign interest. :P

my goodness nyc seems to turn all good things into some kind of crucked reflections in the mirrow of a funhouse..

just ask a friend with a car to take you to LONG ISLAND - and you can stop by a good, well stocked trader joe's on the way back! (OH and there won't be a line around the block)

My kids just discoered that if they put grated cheese and tomato sauce on their skinless hot dogs, they taste YUMMY! I reckon that one of these stores would go a cracker here Down Under!!

One of the few places I will shop, simply for the customer service policy.

If you aren't happy, they will make it right.

(And the selection is pretty damn good too.)

i agree with stormin, EXCELLENT service. these are the type of people who carefully wrap your stuff in a bag and walk around the counter to hand it to you. unless you're in a hurry, which they gauge and they're so very nice.

and portillo's, i have never had better. i'm so glad i don't have to move away from here.
