So Walmart and Nordstrom build physical stores that do not actually sell anything. The two dealers create small hubs in big cities and close suburban areas for buyers to retrieve their online grocery stores and clothing orders. These new places give them access to buyers who want their stuff without getting out to regular big box stores or waiting for home delivery.
The inside of the Lincolnwood locations looks like a Walmart with groceries and groceries such as diapers, household cleaners, and pet supplies. However, unlike a traditional Walmart supersource, customers will not be able to enter. It also tests a similar model near the Arkansas headquarters.
The new location "gives busy customers the opportunity to shop how, when and where they want," said store manager Nicole Olson in a release.
Nordstrom Local hubs are smaller than the traditional warehouses. They provide customers with a place to retrieve and return and take advantage of Nordstrom's change and tailor-made services. Nordstrom has three local stores in Los Angeles and is scheduled to open the first two in New York City in September.
