Nordstrom is currently hosting its Anniversary Sale, offering shoppers low prices on fashion, home and beauty items in stores and online through Aug. 30. Fashion brands featured include Ugg, Madewell and Adidas, plus home and beauty brands like Anthropologie Home and Clinique. The sale has clothing to get kids ready for back-to-school, fall fashion must-haves like coats and boots and beauty items from skincare to haircare. Since Nordstrom cardholders and members of the Nordy Club had early access to the sale, some products have already sold out. But there are still plenty of items to peruse, from activewear to bedding.
To help you make the most of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, we compiled information about the event, notable items and featured brands. Here’s everything you need to know about the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What items are on sale?
Items discounted during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are not from the clearance section. They’re new arrivals or best-selling products from top brands like Kate Spade and Levi’s that are sold at sale prices for a limited time. Katie Roberts, Consumer Analyst with DealNews.com, said shoppers generally don't see discounts on the items offered during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale until at least October. Because of this, Roberts said Nordstrom's sale essentially lets you get deals on seasonal clothing a few months ahead of time. Once the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends, prices go back up — after Aug. 30.
How to make the most of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Roberts recommends shopping at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale as early as you can so you have more to choose from. As the sale goes on, Roberts says some items will sell out and popular sizes will be the first to go.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is being held in stores and online. Nordstrom has implemented contactless curbside pickup at its locations and many of its stores are open across the country for in-person shopping. Nordstrom suggests checking your local store’s hours before shopping, as some may have changed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Stores have implemented a number of safety procedures as well, including requiring face coverings for customers and employees and social distancing. Nordstrom has also altered the fitting room experience and increased cleaning and sanitization during the pandemic.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Daily Deals
In addition to already discounted items, Nordstrom is launching a new item each day of the public sale at 50 percent off. The items featured in daily deals will not be available to shop until their respective dates, so Nordstrom recommends downloading the Nordstrom App and turning on push notifications to know when a daily deal goes live. Nordstrom will also offer beauty daily deals to customers throughout the public sale.
