Nordstrom has opened a standalone e-commerce site for its expanding its flash business, HauteLook and shares a lot of similar features: customers can shop for continuous Nordstrom merchandise at 30 to 70 percent off, or sift through the site’s flash-sale items discounted for a limited time. Once customers log in, items can be added to shopping carts from both Nordstrom Rack and HauteLook. The site offers free shipping for items over $100, and returns can be made for 90 days through mailing or at any local Nordstrom Rack stores.
Right now, the site has an impressive collection of discount dresses from lines like Alice + Olivia, Herve Leger, and Eileen Fischer, as well as shoes from Brian Atwood, Derek Lam, and Stuart Weitzman. Nordstrom said the site is trying to compete with Gilt, and every other e-tailer out there.
