Nordstrom May Expand to Canada in First Foreign Foray

(Corrects wording to “on our game” in third paragraph in May 24 story.)

May 24 (Bloomberg) -- Nordstrom Inc., the U.S. department store chain with 116 namesake locations, is looking to expand into Canada in its first international foray.

The Seattle-based retailer is studying opening its full-sized stores in Canada first, rather than its outlets, said Colin Johnson, a spokesman.

“There is a lot of strong retail presence in Canada, and if we are fortunate enough to find a location and move forward with a store, we’re really going to have to be on our game,” Johnson said in an interview today.

Nordstrom has said it sees opening a maximum additional 14 department stores in the U.S. It also has been seeking to generate growth through its Rack outlet chain and e-commerce.

Nordstrom fell 12 cents to $45.50 in New York Stock Exchange composite trading today. The shares have risen 7.4 percent this year.
