Isn't it great when you get gifts on someone else's anniversary? That's exactly what Nordstrom is doing to celebrate its 117th year in business. If you missed out on Amazon Prime Day, there are some home goods from Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale that you're going to want to get to trick out your pad. If you're not familiar with the history of Nordstrom, the store you know and love actually started as a shoe shop in 1901 in Seattle, according to the Nordstrom website.
Now, almost 120 years later, Nordstrom is the go-to place to get almost everything you need to live your best life. If your apartment could use a major makeover, the home goods available at Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale, which runs through Aug. 6, can give your bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, and even the desk at your office a fresh new look.
What's more, this is no here's-what-we-have-leftover sale. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale includes pre-season deals, glam-out days with free samples of the best new beauty products, and the option of shopping in store, online (free shipping), or picking up your haul curbside. You can also post your bounty on social media and hashtag #NSALE for a chance to win a $500 Nordstrom gift card. Ready to makeover your living space? Grab these deals to spruce up your apartment ASAP.
