The See You Tomorrow shop inside the NYC Flagship store will feature a café space with sustainable food and beverage through an outpost of Bonberi Bodega. Its merchandise assortment will include women’s apparel, women’s shoes, handbags, men’s apparel, accessories and shoes, children’s wear and a limited selection of jewelry and watches.
At launch, the shop will be stocked with merchandise sourced from the Nordstrom Quality Center (NQC), the facility that receives and processes returned and damaged merchandise from Nordstrom’s full-price channels. All merchandise will be cleaned, repaired and refurbished before it becomes available for sale at See You Tomorrow.
Customers can consign their pre-worn items through a customer intake program in the Nordstrom NYC Flagship store in exchange for Nordstrom gift cards. The retailer will soon launch an online intake program where customers will have the ability to mail in merchandise.
Technology and logistics startup company Yerdle will power the backend operations of the resale platform including cleaning and repairing of product, inventory processing and fulfillment, pricing and authentication of certain luxury designer items in partnership with Entrupy.
“In addition to providing customers more ways to engage with us, See You Tomorrow is another step we’re taking to actively support our commitment to sustainability,” said Pete Nordstrom, co-president at Nordstrom. “We’re excited to show our customers another way Nordstrom is striving to leave the world better than we found it and circular fashion is another piece to this puzzle.”
In addition to See You Tomorrow, Nordstrom’s new program with RTR, dubbed Rent the Runway Revive, is available in 24 locations for a limited time and gives shoppers access to discounted gently worn, ready-to-wear designer items starting at $28.
