A year and a half after Nordstrom debuted its first-ever standalone men's shop in Manhattan, the retailer is finally opening the doors to its much-anticipated New York flagship and women's store.

The seven-story flagship, which officially opens to the public on Thursday morning, "will represent the biggest and best statement of the brand, and largest single-project investment in Nordstrom history," according to a company press release. At 320,000 square feet, the store features a wide assortment of brands and products, as well as several "merchandise concepts," including a Nike boutique and Couch customization shop intended to serve as experiential retail spaces.

The opening comes on the heels of a smattering of recent Nordstrom openings in Manhattan in addition to the launch of the men's store in April 2018, the company also rolled out merchandise-less Nordstrom Local hubs on the Upper East Side and in the West Village this year.
