Nordstrom threw the ultimate shopping party to launch its new store at Ridgedale Center. Think: shoe shopping in cocktail dresses, with live music, craft beer from local breweries and bite-size treats ranging from bourbon BBQ pulled pork waffles and cheese curd risotto balls to espresso donut sliders.
Nordstrom co-presidents Blake and Erik Nordstrom and Minnesota Supreme Court Associate Justice Alan Page were among the 2,000 people that attended the opening gala on Sept. 30, which raised more than $200,000 for Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota and PACER Center.
