It’s that time of year again! Nordstrom is hitting us hard with their yearly anniversary sale and our jaws are on the floor.
While the sale officially “began” between August 4 and August 13 for selected cardholders, the sale officially begins for everybody, even non-cardholders, on August 19. That means you can finally snag your favorite sale items even if you never want to join the ever-so-fancy “Nordy Club”. And because of COVID-related disruptions to the spring shopping season, Nordstrom is practically giving stuff away this time around. Seriously, check out the sales deals for yourself. There are price drops we thought were otherwise completely unimaginable — so you better act fast and add what you want to your cart now.
