Six Nordstrom locations in the Toronto area have started their liquidation sales, and many consumers who were searching for a good price on Tuesday were unimpressed.
That’s because the majority of retail items only had a 5% discount.
The Seattle-based retailer’s closing sale began on Tuesday after receiving approval from an Ontario court to liquidate its inventory.
Since Nordstrom, which sells luxury and designer goods, revealed earlier this month that it was closing all of its Canadian locations because it no longer saw a “realistic path for profitability,” many people have been anticipating the sale.
Gordon Brothers Canada and Hilco Merchant Retail Solutions ULC are leading the liquidation process, which is anticipated to last until the end of June.
According to a spokesman, while most things are discounted by 5%, certain buyers may still notice items with discounts of up to 20%.

The Sherway Gardens Nordstrom (25 The West Mall, Etobicoke, ON M9C 1B8)
