Popular department store Nordstrom is branching out and creating a new location with a peculiar characteristic: it will not have any inventory.

It will be staffed with personal stylists who can order merchandise for customers, and offer several kinds of services inside, the Seattle-based company said.

Customers will also be able to make online purchases the store, or pick up online orders the same day.

For those looking for personal services and a bit of pampering, the location will offer tailoring and manicure services. 

The store is just 3,000 square feet, significantly smaller than the average 140,000-square-foot size of a full Nordstrom store.

Nordstrom senior vice president Shea Jensen says the new concept branch will allow the company to offer its ‘best services in a convenient location’.
