Nordstrom Inc - Post Coronavirus (COVID-19) Company impact


Prolonged lockdown requiring store closures at major urban centers has resulted in significant revenue and inventory losses for the retail group.

  • The group’s revenue is expected to come down by 16.1% to USD14.1 bn in 2020, against its anticipated pre COVID-19 sales of USD17.1 bn.
  • Nordstrom is set for an improved digital commerce offering in 2021.
